2nd April 2017 – Somerset

3 different venues on a glorious sunny day, starting at WWT Steart near Bridgwater, then on to West Hay Moor Nature Reserve and ending up at RSPB Ham Wall.

Not much at WWT Steart other than Curlew (and in to the sun).

Reed Bunting and Grey Heron were the best from West Hay Moor.

Three different types of Egret (Great White, Cattle and Little) was the main feature of RSPB Ham Wall.

The Cattle Egrets were a first for me. Also the first time I have seen the Great White Egret with its black bill.

Wall to wall sunshine throughout the day and quite some warmth in the sun without the wind. The Tufted Duck and the Pochard looking resplendent in the sun.
