We walked to Target Lake, where we briefly glimpsed a Kingfisher hovering over the water in search of fish before it disappeared from sight. A Little Egret landed then on the shore of the island and started circling it. It caught a little fish and spent quite a while handling it, spitting it on to the water and picking it again. A few photos revealed that it was a Three-spined Stickleback, its pelvic and dorsal spines erect, which the egret obviously couldn't easily swallow. After a little more handling, the fish was finally dispatched. The egret got another stickleback and the same lenghth process was repeated (You can watch a short clip, here).
We carried on and stopped on the high hide at the N side of Ness Pit. Other than a cormorant on the water, the place was quiet and deserted. Then there were some 'pings' in the distance and a flock of Bearded Tits flew low over the reed bed and landed relatively close to the hide.
A couple of drake Gadwall preening on the shore.
