A nice Spring time visit to Burton Mere is always a good trip out. The sun was shining and the birds were nice and active on the reserve just by the Dee Estuary. There wasn't anything out of the ordinary this day, but it was nice to be out with no rain, snow or wind and good light.
I managed to add a few year ticks too, in the shape of Curlew, Pintail, Marsh Harrier and Oystercatcher. The elusive Cetti's Warbler was once again added to my 'Heard Only' list for the year.
This Dunnock was in fine voice in the warm sunshine.
A Little Egret on a fly past.
A Little Grebe with a fish almost as big as itself.
Some soon to be departed Pink-footed Geese flying over the marsh.
A very good looking Shelduck.
A Teal in the fantastic light.
