Calvert BBOWT; A packed ,and importantly quiet 1st hide were rewardedwith good views of all 3 shy reed dwelling species tonight. Firstly a CETTI'S WARBLER flew accross gap below hide. It then appeared in full view on face of tall reeds close to hide. Stayed there for c6 seconds, weaved through reeds into lone bush. Heard singing later.

The EURASIAN BITTERN climbed reeds in same spot as last night at 1610. in left hand reedbed.This is reedbed directly below hide not one on opposite bank. A WATER RAIL emerged from reeds and preened for long time.

Also a COMMON SHELDUCK briefly, flew off West (Tim Watts)
