Burton Mere

Since lockdown ended i’ve spent a lot of my birding time at RPSB Burton Mere Wetlands trying to grab a picture of the Bearded Tits. As they are only giving very brief glimpses as they flit between the reeds i’ve had to make do with photographing whatever else is around.

Here are the last few months worth of pictures

Sightings include

A close in Great Egret a very late Reed Warbler, and an amazing experience with a Great Bittern which flew in, then crashed about in one reedbed before flying across to another, and then perched at the top of the reeds for about 20 minutes before skulking off.
