The last couple of evenings spent at Tophill Low have been very interesting. I got all excited on Sunday evening when I photographed what I thought was a Sparrowhawk perched on a reed at the far end of the lagoon near North Marsh hide. I was a little dismayed when I returned home and viewed the image on my computer screen only to find out that it was a Cuckoo. Thirty minutes previously, I saw this Snipe amongst the reeds. It appeared to be very nervous and stood motionless amongst the reeds before it eventually ventured out onto the lake shore.Last night, a Grey Heron flew directly over the top of the hide and I saw the resident Little Grebe with a fish in its beak. A couple of photographs of a Barn Owl and a male Kingfisher made the evening complete. Marvellous!
