Chasing buntings

On my last dog walk I was captivated by butterflies.
Today it was the birds that thrilled. My first chiffchaff of this spring, and not just one, but three !!!!
Then I had this heron fly past, not sure what it had in it's beak

And for the last part of my walk I had this pair of reed buntings flitting about amongst the grass and the hedge.

I must have followed them for about quarter of an hour, the dog was very good and kept waiting to allow me to take photo's but I still never managed to get quite close enough.
