Back in January we wrote about how the cold weather here in the uK had led to an increase in the number of bittern sightings. It now seems that a BBC camera crew have managed to go a step further at the RSPB Minsmere reserve and have caught on film a male bittern "booming" in daylight for the first time in the UK.

Male bitterns make their booming noise as a way of attracting females in the spring. It is thought that there are 82 booming males in the UK at present, but they are notoriously difficult to spot which makes capturing one on film even more special.

The full story of the "return of the booming bittern" was shown on last night's the One Show which should be available on the BBC iPlayer for a week or so.
