Best bird I've seen in a while - this adult Night Heron at Dunster Hawn was found by Jon White. It was only present for a few hours after he found it, and most of the time it was deep in cover. It wasn't long before it got hungry and climbed down the tree it was roosting in to catch a fish. What a stunner!

An evening on the Somerset Levels was great, with a pair of Bitterns chasing each other around for ages. The male is chasing a smaller female. The Marsh Harrier shows some damage to its primaries - hopefully this was just an accident rather than something more sinister.
