Not tits!

A glutton for punishment I headed back to Saltholme hoping to get the Penduline Tit. After almost 3 hours sitting in the hide, watching the rain and discussing every 80s movie ever made, all hope had gone. A call of  'I've got it' was followed by a dash to the left of the hide and blind panic from me as I searched the reed tops in vain. I eventually picked up the now two Penduline Tit feeding low in the reeds, giving excellent scope views. The birds showed well for about 15mins and then an hour later for a couple of minutes, but never close enough for photos.

Not much else was seen, but a Bittern did a couple of distant fly-bys.
