Teifi - Bittern and bits....

A couple of shots of the Bittern...
 or one of maybe two Bitterns currently on the Teifi Marshes.
Photos from Tommy Evans, one of our regulars on the Teifi. Bitterns are best looked for from Kingfisher Hide, where this male Shoveler also made an appearance over the weekend.
A few Shovelers may be found with passage Wigeon and Teal in the Autumn on the main estuary, a nice find in November by Gary Reynolds on Kingfisher Pond.

Tonight c1600:
About 25000 Starlings went to roost in the hedge and reedbed alongside the river at the end of the creek. Best watched from behind the Welsh Wildlife Centre itself.
Marsh Tit feeding in the car park too.
