The Green Heron filled the morning then it was onto Wadebridge, the walmsley sanctuary for the American Bittern, Mega number two. Actually I went to Wadebridge reluctantly as I expected it to be rammed with visiting birders. On my arrival there seem to be a mass exodus from the main hide as the Bittern had flown and this was to my advantage, as I was able to jump in a key seat, then low and behold the Bittern flew back into the sanctuary, I had reasonable views but no worthy photographs, however a tick, so two Mega' in one day, can't be bad. Along with them I had two Firecrests ( at Heligan), one Whooper, and one Spoonbill at Walmsley along with all the regular species.
