    These can be quite an elusive bird to spot, but there is no mistake of their deep booming call. They have a habit of just taking off from out the reeds at any given moment. I was sat in a spot once, and after about ten minutes or so and feeling all relaxed, one suddenly took flight from about 5ft away, had no idea it was there, needless to say it did make me jump slightly. Now is the time of year they are starting to be quite vocal as the mating season gets underway.
