Willow sculpture, making a Bittern

Our next course is at the education centre at RSPB Minsmere, a great location which some of you may have seen on Springwatch. We will be making willow sculptures of the iconic Bittern which lives in the reed beds. By the end of the day you will have learnt how to make small willow sculptures and have a Bittern to take home. We visited the site a few days ago and were really lucky to see a Bittern in full boom.
