Things started well when in the Steetly hide we saw a Bittern fly in from the East but the miserable so and so landed in the reeds right at the back and was not seen again as far as I know.Things went rapidly downhill after this bit of excitement because we saw nothing from any of the hides and there was a complete lack of any birds in the trees and hedgerows.Desperate to use the camera I took shots of some toadstools.Hells teeth !!!!!!
By the sheep field we did spot a raptor high in the sky which one or two of us thought might have been a juvenile Peregrine but we were wrong.It was a Kestrel I think ????
After a lunchtime cup of tea in the cafe and a chat to the very attractive waitress (who had flowers in her hair today) I gave up and went home.
