After sitting for a couple of hours at the Kingfisher hide we were preparing to pack up as the light was not good. Jen quietly mentioned that there was a bittern sitting to the far right of the hide. Wow - our first bittern of the season - in fact it seems to be the first for Pembrokeshire.

Pembrokeshire Birds Blog was showing a Squacco Heron down in Angle, South Pembs. for a few days, but the light had not been good so I had not thought it worthwhile to travel down there. On Saturday the light was good so took the opportunity to go down. This is one of many shots I managed of this rare heron:

A kingfisher comes to the kingfisher hide at the Teifi Marshes, Cilgerran more regularly these days but not often on convenient perches for photographing. This one came very close but had backlighting - managed to get this image - with some adjustments!
