Pics from a Somerset Levels trip

With nearly (but not quite) a whole day free from work yesterday, myself and Becca visited RSPB Ham Wall for a pleasant walk around the footpaths. We were certainly lucky in that the weather was lovely pretty much all day; I was hoping to see Bittern, Great White Egret & Marsh Harrier but only the latter put in an appearance, and it was a very brief one at that. The disadvantage of the weather being so bright and sunny was that the pics came out with horrible highlights and shadows which there was no way around, hence why my favoured conditions for photography is lightly overcast with fluffy white clouds! Can't grumble, it didn't rain until we were home!

Here's a few pics; the Stonechat was a particularly striking chap, such a shame about the lighting!!
