The first month of 2020 gifted Somerset with an almost permanent covering of cloud and no little rain! As a result, most chances to get out and take photos were hampered by the light and conditions! Luckily there were a couple of weekends of sun, and I took full advantage by visiting my local nature reserve, RSPB Greylake, and photographing the birds that make this wonderful place their winter home.
One amazing bird I saw here was a male Hen Harrier! This was only the second time I'd ever seen a male in my life. My first one was at Steart in Somerset back in the early 1990s!
Unfortunately, it stayed at the back of the reserve, so I could only get a distant record shot, but it was proof that I had seen it!
