Sutton Gault

This afternoon Paul and myself paid a visit to Sutton Gault in Cambridgeshire. Our target bird was the Purple Heron, luckily for us as soon as we arrived on site we immediately connected with the bird. We enjoyed good but fairly distant views before the Purple Heron flew about 500 yards further south. Also noted here were; Little Grebe and Little Egret.

On the way back we made a couple of stops in North Herts. Firstly at Deadman's Hill near Sandon; Buzzard (3), Red Kite (2), Kestrel, Yellowhammer.

Next stop was the village of Wallington, here we encountered a family party of Spotted Flycatchers.
First four pics below of dubious quality are mine then next five are Paul's; My pics Purple Heron at Sutton Gault, then next 3 pics Spotted Flycatchers at Wallington. Paul's pics, first two Purple Heron then next three Spotted Flycatchers.
