BBC films rare bittern at Attenborough Nature Reserve


Visitors to Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire have been treated to unprecedented views of over-wintering bitterns.

BBC East Midlands Today's Sally Pepper joined birdwatchers to capture footage of one of the country's rarest birds close up and in flight.
