    Great Bittern. Botaurus stellaris,   Status: Vagrant

There is an old Mull record from way back in Jan-Mar 1982 at Dervaig reed bed. This is the largest reed bed on Mull and it is very under watched. I believe there is a lot more to find here. 
In 2009 8th Dec. a bird was recorded & photographed south of Oban. The last confirmed record in Argyll was a dead bird near Appin in 1999
