30th April: Cranes

Best birds of the morning today were a 7 Common Cranes which flew high North over the Avalon Marshes at 11:45.
The birds were very distant but were still a lovely sight through the scope.

Earlier, on this mornings guided walk we were treated to 'scope views of a Grasshopper Warbler back on it's usual territory, the first one i've actually seen this year, though i've heard a few 'reeling'.
It felt like the warmest day of the year so far, and the butterflies responded well and were out in force at Ham Wall RSPB:

Green-veined White

Orange Tip
This Great-crested Grebe flew over nice and low, showing off the big white panel in the wing that is so striking when you see the upperside in flight.

Why not book one of my Guided Walks to join me for a morning or afternoon of birding on The Avalon Marshes. SEE MORE, LEARN MORE!
