10th January 2017 – Minsmere

After a day of visiting churches and cathedrals in Suffolk (there’s only one cathedral in Suffolk) it was good to get back to some bird watching at RSPB Minsmere. Weren’t we lucky?  A mainly sunny day and not too cold. And loads to see…

A spectacular display of 8 Marsh Harriers (even though they were quite a long way away) and a Bittern at Island Mere. A quick stop at the Bittern Hide to see more Marsh Harriers (can’t believe they are quite a rare bird) before going along the North Wall (Bearded Tits but too quick for photos) and a good stop at a the East Hide where we saw the Minsmere flagship Avocet. Teal looked great in the sunshine and Redshank, Godwits, Shelduck, Shoveler, Dunlin and Lapwing all paraded in front of us.
