Overhead Snipe

A wader paradise.... scene of Snipe flypast, too fast for me to photograph

Forecast today was dry turning wet, so just time for a brief look at Greylake RSPB reserve on the way down to Dorset. Very quiet, but 2, then 8 then 3 high flying Snipe were entertaining, a lone Songthrush but apart from that nothing much else about. On the Huntspill river 3 male and 2 female Goosander and a lone Great Crested Grebe. Quite a few Little Egrets about at the moment, including one in a field at the Venn, Milborne Port. Better day forecast for tomorrow, so may head over and see one of the Cattle Egrets.
