Quite unusual Angie, there have been more than normal in the recent cold weather with an influx from Europe.

It's always worth reporting to your local bird recorder giving date seen, location etc. Is that a springer spaniel? We have a Springer and compared to our other dog - a lab x collie he's a real handfull.

Would that be Carron Row?

Bittern is normal in wintertime for the Tichfield reserve just down the road.
