An evening on the Teifi Marsh

No Sand Martins or White Wagtails yet.....but what an evening.
We went on a visit to Mallard Pond for a hunting Barn Owl. First a wander through our ringing area and two Jack Snipe. Shortly after, a Barn Owl appeared hunting along a favoured hedge below Heron Hide. Ten minutes later two calling Bitterns slowly flying overhead and away to the east.
Just one of those evenings...

Historical note from the Teifi Marsh.
March 22nd 2010, at 7pm I watched two calling Bitterns circle up in the sky and fly off east. That was the last Bittern sightings of that winter.
