Swimming Bittern. It's not every day you see a Bittern, let alone a Bittern going for a swim. Several hours waiting in the hide at RSPB Conwy gave me this amazing view of the animal swimming across a gap in the reeds. These elusive birds are still rare in the UK, and their cryptic camouflage makes finding and photographing them very challenging.
