Somerset Levels

29th May 2017
A day out on the Somerset levels, hoping to find some good species to photograph, the weather was against us with some very heavy showers, but we timed our visits to the hides well and managed to stay dry. Highlights were  a female Red footed Falcon ( a lifer in Britain for me though very distant)and a male Little Bittern ( which I saw briefly but didn't manage a photo). Other notable birds were Great White Egret, Great Bittern, and Garganey.
