SOMERSET'S NATURE RESERVES.

We have just got back from a trip to Hungary. 
The days before and after we flew we stayed with family in Bristol 
and took the opportunity to visit some great NR's in Somerset. 
The Bittern was taken at Greylake NR and all the rest at Ham Wall NR.
The editor (Sue) is working on the shots from Hungary as we speak.

I managed some record shots of the Dalmatian Pelican today.
Weather was a bit hazy but what a treat to see this in Cornwall.
