Betjeman birds

Whilst doing the second part of the Betjeman Trail in the West Country we did manage to see a few interesting birds, photos of some can be seen below:

Hobby (one of five) over Ham Wall RSPB reserve



Bittern – several heard ‘booming’ at Ham Wall, three seen flying together but distant, and this bird which provided some light relief during the seven hours spent waiting for and missingĀ the Pied-billed Grebe!




Singing male Blackcap




Great Egret, at the same location




Pied Flycatcher in Yarner Wood





Male Mandarin, Yarner Wood




Sparrowhawk somewhere on Dartmoor




Dartford Warbler, Aylesbeare Common – the only bird seen on a rather breezy day
