Baikal bonus

The little one was chomping at the bit to see the Baikal Teal within the Ely10 so by the afternoon I relented and we pottered down the Washes on a family safari. It was distant but the striking head pattern was visible even at long range. 

Further down at Welney a couple of Great White Egrets have been in residence but were not visible in the brief time I had in the hide.  From the cafĂ©, where I did have a much longer time to watch birds coming and going on Lady Fen, a lone Whimbrel, Little Ringed Plover and a very smart White Wagtail were the highlights.
