Yesterdays bittern in front of the Colyford hide, although fairly close, was almost impossible to see with just binoculars. The camera saw more than me and in the photo below the eye gives away the bitterns position. Not easy to see even then but this was the best view I had.
A trip to Beer Head for the yellow wagtails this morning proved successful but apart from plenty of swallows, linnets, goldfinches and a peregrine there was not a lot else around at that time. So sad to see the swallows departing on their epic journey. Lets hope luck goes with them all.
