The Fen: back on top form!

Great couple of hours at Strumpshaw with Brian Tubby this morning: Kingfishers at several points around the reserve, a close fly-past by a Bittern (one of three at the Fen) all the expected insects and a delightful Barn Owl hunting over the meadows. A Common Tern caught an super-sized lunch in front of Fen Hide!

A really confiding, well-grown leveret was nice to see on the river bank.
