Blyth's Reed Warbler - Ferry Meadows

Ⓒ Roy Norris
Observed today between Lynch and Overton lakes.

Update: Having had a stab at calling it a Cetti's,
 I have been advised that its actually a Blyth's Reed Warbler.
These are all the images that I took and timed around 12-27pm.

Great White Egret, Wypes Dole nr Eastrea

A couple of record shots of this egret found by Charlie Kitchen yesterday. This was my third visit (seen also yesterday afternoon and this morning) but this afternoon provided the best chance of some images as the bird was much closer to the drove and more active. I was amazing just how well hidden a large white bird could be once it started feeding in the dyke. And it seemed to be catching plenty of very small prey items, presumably small fish.
