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:

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!
