(Great) Bittern (Botaurus stellaris)

A rare and shy, but resident, species preferring thick reed beds. I have in the past found a Great Bittern that was obviously lost sheltering on Chicken Island in front of the Quinta, but I have a feeling that that was a once in a lifetime occasion and unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me ...
