Little Bitterns at Ham Wall

Did the Little Bittern nest and breed at Ham Wall during 2014?



  • Hi Ian,

    I'm sorry to say that they failed to breed this year as far as we are aware. Plenty of surveying took place and we managed to record 4 barking male birds but unfortunately no evidence of any females or significant nesting behavior. The fact that there were 4 males must be a positive - the hope is that they will return this year and bring some females with them.

    Kind Regards
