Just back from a few days on the Somerset Levels, staying near Glastonbury.  One of the things I wanted to do was take some photos of the sunrise, sunset and moonrise around Glastonbury Tor.  Was quite lucky with the weather - nice clear nights and misty mornings.  Below are a few shots.  The sunrise photos were taken from Wearyall Hill.  The sunset photos from the top of the Tor.  The moonrise photos from a drove a few km out on the levels.

While there, made a couple of visits to Catcott Lows where Cattle Egrets were present.  Only the 8 there when I visited, but flew quite close on occasion.  I also managed to see a male Hen Harrier do a quick fly by.

I popped to Cheddar reservoir one afternoon in hope of seeing 3 (relatively) unusual birds.  Grey Phalarope, Black Tern and Little Gull.  Managed to see all 3.

And finally a couple of other photos from Ham Wall and Steart.

A lovely sunny day at Titchfield Haven today.  Quite a bit about (Marsh Harrier, Hobby, Sparrowhawk, Kingfisher, Yellow Wagtail), but all distant.  But a Water Rail showed very well out in the open on and off for about 30 minutes.  The first I've seen properly.

A few snaps of an Osprey with a fish at Arne this morning.  Not much else about today.

Went to Hengistbury Head today to serch for Wrynecks.  No luck.  A few Whitethroats, Blackcaps and Stonechats.  Plus a nice Sparrowhawk up pretty close.

At Arne for sunrise today, but rather cloudy.  But a couple of Ospreys spent some time circling in front the Raptor Trail hide.  Poor light, ISO3200 and slow shutter speed didn't make for great photos, but nice to see them.  Neither seemed to have rings on, so these aren't the released juvemile Ospreys as far as I can tell.
