Minsmere (part 2)

Whilst getting ready for our last day at Minsmere I spotted (excuse the pun)this Spotted Flycatcher in the bushes to the side,there ended up being three Flycatchers one of which was a youngster.Back to Minsmere and the reported Glossy Ibis was no where to be seen but we did come across this Spoonbill on the edge of one of the pools just managing a couple of pics before it took off for pastures new, moving along to the other hide in the hope of meeting up with the Hobbies again this common Tern was quite obliging for a second or so.Never had another chance at the Hobbies or the Marsh Harriers, moving on up to Hickling Broad Norfolk tomorrow in the hope of seeing some Swallowtails.

As we were leaving Minsmere we came across this quite striking fungi (Chicken of the woods)we were told by one of the tree management people who was also eying it up to see how much damage it had done to the tree if any.
