From today's Guardian: "Big rise in number of breeding males in species which became extinct in 19th century."

I've seen a bitttern at the London Wetland Centre, and at RSPB Minsmere - but I'd love to hear one "booming"!

Good to hear - this is also the loudest bird in Finland. Not that it sounds "loud" (even when close), but according to a voice survey published in Finnish Linnut ("Birds") magazine few years ago, it can be heard 9.5 kilometres away (and that't just what I've measured, too).
