Little bittern nesting in England

July 2010: The rare little bittern has successfully nested in Somerset in what is only the second confirmed breeding of the bird in the UK. The first was in Yorkshire in 1984. The little bittern is a small member of the heron family that nests in wetlands, making the reedbed at the RSPB‘s Ham Wall nature reserve near Glastonbury, an ideal location: here.
