Visiting Brandon Marsh (1 Viewer)

My first visit to Brandon Marsh today. What a lovely place.

Herons, one eating frogs, kestrels, buzzards, teal, reed bunting, lapwing, cormorants, oystercatchers, shelduck, grebe, gossander, gadwall, shoveler, long tailed tits and my first redpoll.

There had been sightings of beaded tit and bittern, yesterday, but not today.

I did get a great sight of a kingfisher catching fish though and even got some reasonable photos!!

Must mention the Nature Force volunteers who were out in great numbers repairing paths etc. - great work people!!!!

Off to Brandon Marsh again today. Lovely weather so I hope to make some nice photos.

I am hoping to set up a site for my photos soon, with my techie bloke's help :)
Such a great day again today, so many birds, so my most favourite things were:

Great and close sighting of reed buntings - even my not so good camera had good shots
Many buzzards and a pair of kestrels who were mating!
A barn owl popped its head out of a box at about 3pm - I stayed until 6pm but no further sighting
Fishing little egrets - pair
Snipe and red shanks on the lake edge
Huge flock of teal
A kingfisher as I was leaving...
.....and a muntjac deer!
Although it was colder and a bit rainy I saw:

Sparrow hawk
And my first Sand Martin of the year :)
