Norfolk weekend

As usual everything was extremely tame in Norfolk. This bittern was an incredible sight when it caught this water shrew less than 5 metres from the assembled crowd of photographers on Beeston Common.

The teal is a hybird green-winged(American) x Eurasian teal, as it has both vertical and horizontal white stripes in its flanks, both stripes are noticably less bold than is usual for these two species.
