While Britain isn't Booming.

While Britain isn't booming, according to this BBC report, Bitterns are.

I'm pleased to see that one has been heard on the Isle of Anglesey. Historically the area that I live in was once a very swampy area but nearly all the land has been drained and improved for agriculture but we do have some nature reserves, where the reed beds have been preserved, so maybe one day we may have Bitterns too. I've never seen or heard one.
