Ham Wall RSPB

Hello all,
For Bank Holiday Monday, I visited Ham Wall RSPB on the Somerset Levels. There were some great birds there, including some "Yearers" and lifers, and it was a great day out. Bittern seemed to be booming constantly, and one great moment saw two bitterns being harassed by two Marsh Harriers! A Water Rail was also seen, in fast low flight, and Reed Bunting were obvious in the place that gives them their name. Bearded Tits were also seen and heard, and two Cetti's Warbler also made themselves obvious. A long staying GLOSSY IBIS was also seen, along with a female Garganey. A Great Spotted Woodpecker nest gave good views, with the young almost fully grown! Reed Warbler, Lapwing, Buzzard, GREAT WHITE EGRET and Little Egret were also seen, and with other birds, the total for the day was 43!
Below are some of the photos of the day...
