Lil’ Bittern

From time to time I visit an area near Leipzig comprising some lakes, meadows
and beautiful deciduous forests. It inhabits several rare bird species but is only
rarely observed and therefore wildife is poorly documented.

This time I found my second Little Bittern Ixobrychus minutus in that area.
