Taxidermy case of cream coloured variety of Eurasian Bittern by Edward Hart.
Taxidermy case of cream coloured variety of Eurasian Bittern. According to Edward Hart, writing on 27 April 1927, '(No 1): Cream coloured variety. This very beautiful specimen is supposed to be the only known variety of this species in the world. I had known of this bird being in the neighbourhood for some time, but not until January 1906 had I the gratification of adding it to my collection. Shot by M. Wagg at Sopley Mark, Nr Christchurch'.
