I am a third-year student studying Mathematics at the University of Surrey and have always had an interest in wildlife photography. A few years ago I raised £500 for the RSPB by selling greetings cards with my photos on and won the Thomson Habitats Photography Competition.

Probably our best visit to the reserve. We had good views of a Bittern in the small reedbed in front of the viewpoint, it then swam between two reedbeds. It took be 363 days to see a Bittern last year, but only six this year! We also had good views of three Snipe, two Egyptian Geese, Reed Buntings, two Goldeneye and the Scaup.
