Yesterday we crossed the Humber Bridge, but didn't venture too far into alien territory. It was a day when the students were really able to shine. First, Anthony spotted the Common Scoter among all the other ducks. Then, while we were watching a Rock Pipit, Miles saw and identified a pair of delightfully confiding Snow Buntings. Finally, in Reedy Hide Tony observed the Bittern fly out from the reeds in front of the Main Hide. It was very distant, but it stayed in the open long enough to be seen by all. In the afternoon the Bittern was the only one of the big three which didn't put on a repeat performance!
