The day got off to a super start as we were lucky enough to see a Night Heron flying alongside a reedbed. We then spent a little time differentiating and enjoying superb views of Cattle Egret, Little Egret and Great White Egret.

After a very interesting presentation kindly given by one of the ever-helpful reserve managers, we walked back through the wetland from where we watched Marsh Harrier, Purple Gallinule and Greater Flamingo.

We ended the day with a visit to a relatively new reserve to see if anything was around. It proved to be a lovely ending to the trip as we were fortunate to enjoy superb views of up to 6 Squacco Herons.
