Even a very rare bird in western-europe


Fortunately I've often seen them in numbers up to 10 birds at Shapwick Heath in Somerset (UK) during Spring/summer. I must be very fortunate to see them if they're rare. Also got to see the first ever Great (White) egret chicks that have ever bred in UK at Shapwick Heath last Summer :)

The first hobby I've seen, flying over my garden this morning and being harrassed by jackdaws.

Very soon it'll be on its way back to you!
