Hi All

Three Little Bitterns - 2 males and 1 female seen by seven observers this 
evening.  First sighting occurred at about 6:15pm.  At one stage, had a male 
and female showing in the same clump.  Looking towards Lytton Road, the birds 
were seen at the back of the right hand side of the wetland.  Lewin's Rail 
calling over on the left hand side at the back of the far clump of rushes - not 

Little Bittern heaven!
