Play Misty For Me

Yesterday the mist came and went, and the birds came and went too.  For long periods there wasn't too much to see, and then at other moments we were rewarded with pure jewels.  Is the below photo of Bearded Tits just too colourful?  The Cetti's Warbler gave its explosively loud song just next to us, but only Bridget got a glimpse of the bird with its tail cocked like a Wren.

After the rest of us had departed Maggie stayed behind and was rewarded with good views of a hunting Marsh Harrier.
