I have been trying to see this bird, a Eurasian (great) bittern (Botaurus stellaris) for a long time. I finally spotted it, and what a peculiar looking bird. It is really hard to spot it when it sits perfectly still between the reeds. I heard it before I spotted it. It had a unique sound, kinda like when blowing in a bottle, but very loud.
..oh and Rørdrum is the danish name for this bird 🙂
