Great Reed Warbler

Red Rumped Swallow
Here is a selection of shots that werent particularly good , basically just  record shots of various birds. We had plenty of Bee-Eaters fly over but didnt get any of them sitting for close up photographs. Woodchat Shrikes were fairly common but not too confiding and the Little Bitterns were enjoyed at distance, as true to form, they are quite shy and retiring birds. We were lucky enough to see both Great Bustard and Little Bustard, the latter being particularly difficult to see let alone photograph! The Great Reed Warblers were equally hard to view even though they could be heard at close range.
