Great Bittern

found in Europe and Africa.

In 2004 a LIFE-Co-op project was launched to collect, evaluate and to disseminate the results of EU-LIFE projects targeting the Great Bittern (Botaurus stellaris). The final conference of this project was held in December 2005 (7th-9th) in the UK. During this conference the results of the project were presented and jontly discussed to initiate the update of the European Bittern Action Plan that is already overdue.

The website bitterns.org.uk tells you all about a major project, which will give bitterns in the UK a much brighter future…
