It was only when I looked at the pictures that I noticed that it was 'perched' on what was presumably going to be its' lunch!
From here I moved onto Titchwell, for what was surprisingly my first visit since the new Parindar Hide was constructed. For those that don't know, it is an amazing, somewhat 'space age' structure, that has more of a feel of a command centre than a hide - the all new 'super hide'!
Two each of distant Temminck's and Little Stint were noted amongst the magnitude of Avocet (I wonder how long it will be before this species is noted as a pest to other breeding birds!) and fewer Oystercatcher. There were good numbers of Common Sandpiper and a group of Bar-tailed Godwit joined the throng. Three resplendent summer Grey Plover and a few brick-red Black-tailed Godwit were present. It was good to see a Number of Little Tern, as well as the pair of Garganey. A Little Ringed Plover showed well. All this to the resounding booming of a Bittern.
Marsh Harriers continue to fascinate me and I continue to try to take some in-flight (in-focus) pictures and am yet to succeed!
I was also fortunate enough to have brief views of the Montagu's Harrier and a distant Spoonbill.
My favourite picture of the day!
