I thought I'd post a few highlights over the next day or 2 starting with... Common Crane.
What a great bird. Not a lifer for me as I once had 2 fly over our house!! We were treated to extended views of this bird, a real joy. A few minutes after this, we saw 2 Bittern drop into the reeds and a hobby alighted on a nearby tree. Also we were treated to fabulous views of a pristine male Marsh Harrier. Quite a good hour's birdwatching.
