Now back to yesterday. I bottled it on a trip to look for the Bridled Tern and instead opted to go look for a couple of other things. Started off somewhere in England.
|A pale male Honey Buzzard. Sadly, it was always distant for photography, but I'm sure I'll revisit this site in the hope of getting better images of this stunning bird.|
The afternoon was spent in Somerset, at Ham Wall RSPB reserve, in the hope of seeing the now famous pair of breeding Little Bitterns.
|Connected with both the male and the female, but both sightings were brief. Here is the male. Note the red bill, showing that he is in breeding condition. Will certainly be making a return visit to this fabulous site to get better images.|
|3rd-calendar year Marsh Harrier.|
|This Bittern flew over our heads calling.|
|Both images depict males.|
