Hunt for highly secretive bird
BRILLIANT but secretive bitterns will be sought out by visitors to Lakenheath Fen.
There are currently at least six males on the reserve and although sightings are not common, guides hope that a specially designed three-mile morning walk will offer the best chance of sightings.
David White, information officer at Lakenehath Fen, said: “All of the reeds on the reserve were planted to provide nesting habitat for bitterns.
“They nested for the first time in 2009 and there were seven nests last year.”
The guided walk will take place on Sunday, June 24, between 7am and 10am.
The cost is £6 for adults and £3 for children with coffee and croissants £2 extra.
