Great Bittern / Rohrdommel
Our old friend showing again. However over christmas the little bit of ice had gone. Dabbling ducks went by the nice bird very close. / Unser alter Bekannter zeigte sich erneut. Allerdings war ueber Weihnachten das Eis ganz geschmolzen und nun gruendelten viele Enten in seiner naehe.

The light and color are amazing and I've never had the privilege of meeting this guy.

Its not much different to American Bittern, just a bit bigger but with a less distinctive neck stripe and shyer. Not an easy bird to find and see, especially when there is no blind at the site.
