RSPB Burton Mere

Lots of activity everywhere right now, with young birds needing feeding. It means that birds are a made a little easier to see, even with trees now in full leaf, as they dart between nest to feeding area.
Whilst looking for the Spoonbills at Burton Mere, there were plenty of warblers in and around the reed areas. I managed to catch up with my first Sedge Warbler of the year. A very showy bird. Singing loudly and marking out it's territory.
Reed Warblers and Common Whitethroat were also in abundance. The Reed Warblers only gave fleeting views as they were constantly foraging in the reeds.

Standing next to one of the pools, a Grey Heron.

  1. Hello, nice outing and great bird sightings. The Grey heron shot is beautiful and I love the singing Whitethroat. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. Great captures, Adam. Looks like a wonderful area for wildlife sightings.

  3. Beautiful shots of the birds.

  4. The whitethroat is aptly named. Attractive bird it is.

    Also, the grey heron is posed so well...what a terrific series of photos.

    And, thanks again, so much, for adding your post link at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

  5. Nice post! Love the grey heron especially!

  6. Herons are such stately birds...


I enjoy reading your comments as much as I enjoy taking the pictures. Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post.
