Good Birding

Another good days birding had today in Somerset . We started the day off at the Ham Wall Reserve to have a look for the male Little Bittern that has been on show there , I picked a good spot in hope of getting a shot of it and after spending around 2 hours standing there I decided to walk down to where the other group of birders had gathered , and would you believe it !! as just as I reached them the bird flew...Hence no photos lol  , also seen around the reserve were 7 Garden Warbler , numerous Cetti`s Warbler , 6 Great White Egret , 4 Little Egret , 5 Western Marsh Harrier , a Red Kite , 2 Eurasian Hobby , a very nice but very distant female Red-Footed Falcon  & 2 Common Cuckoo .
We then heard news that there was a Gull-Billed Tern showing at the Steart WWT so we went to see if we could catch up with it and our luck was in as it was still showing but again it was always very distant .
