4th May RSPB Ham Wall - 6 Bitterns

An amazing sight today of 6 bitterns in the air together. They all seemed to appear out of Waltons and then disperse.

Also after a slow start the Hobbies took the air, at times up to 30 in the air, often joined by swifts. On one occasion the hobbies were flying with a Buzzard. Just great to watch the Hobbies flying around a circulating Buzzard.

Great White Egrets flying in the Waltons and Loxons reedbeds, at least 5 were seen today.

Cuckoo flew passed a couple of times.
