12th January 2017 – RSPB Minsmere

A late morning walk around Minsmere: out along the North Wall to the East Hide and back via The Sluice before heading off for lunch at the Eel’s Foot Inn as the rain was setting in.

Good views of 2 Green Woodpeckers at the beginning of the North Wall but I was too slow to get a photo. Song Thrush in the same place. A lame Avocet was coping quite well on the scrape, along with a Great Black-backed Gull, some Dunlin and a few Redshank.  Widgeon from the South Hide and Greylag Geese flying over. A glimpse of a Marsh Harrier too. Not really much around – the birds must have seen the weather forcast.
