'Crazy Bittern Dance' - groovy baby!
Some rather shaky handheld video of the now famous 'Crazy Bittern' taken today at Sprotbrough Flash near Doncaster. Nobody is quite sure why he is doing this, perhaps proclaiming his territory, or maybe alarming at something that's bothering him (although we don't know what). Seems a bit early to be a mating display, so perhaps he's just found some magic mushrooms hidden in the Phragmites :)
P.S. Other sexes are available.
