Fancied Crook's Peak, Somerset today and a nice wander up the hill which overlooks the M5, Bristol Channel and most of Somerset and beyond! Also the chance of a Ringed Ouzel but none seen.
There were some Fieldfare (3) & Redwing (10) but they didn't hang around.




After a ponder at top, headed towards Chew Valley Lake, not been since February! Its 9 miles in a straight line from home think I could walk it!..Not Sure :/
@ Herriotts Channel - Little Egrets around 4 scrabbled for the best perch. 


While noticing a Kingfisher hidden in bush saw this Water Rail scamper at waters edge !


Headed round to Heron's Green side for a coffee.
Lovely Grebes


  Normal stuff about, Goosander far side lots of Coot and Black Headed Gulls and a few great looking Common Gulls.



A nice fly past from Grey Heron and headed to Dam End.


Final shot of the day was a Egyptian Goose looking sleepy.



Thanks For Looking !
