The first decent day weather wise for a while and I ventured to the Aquadrome and the River Colne. I then walked down the canal and eventually found my way to the river where after a wait the female Little Bittern showed and then showed very well. At one point it appeared to have caught a stickleback but had difficulty swallowing it. It then spent some time rubbing the fish against the vegetation - presumably to get rid of the spines. It eventually flew a few yards upstream showing its very distinctive flight pattern.
