Somerset Birding

A trip up to Somerset today with my mate Ken Montandon with our first stop at the  Greylake NR to look for a reported Green-Winged Teal but alas no was no sign of it today and not a lot else to report either with the best birds seen being a female Merlin and a Little Ringed Plover .
So we then made our way to the Ham Wall Reserve where we saw a Great White Egret , 2 Western Marsh Harrier , numerous Cetti`s Warbler and 2 booming Great Bittern , we then went across the road to Shapwick Heath and saw 6 more Western Marsh Harrier with a male and female talon gripping in flight , great to see and the first time that I have seen this ! we then headed back to the car and had another Great Bittern booming .
