Bittern, Kingfisher and Snipe: typical Strumpshaw fare!

Brian and I met early at the Fen (Tuesday is his 'duty day' as a vol) for a pre-hurricane dash around the reserve.

As the title of the post suggests, there were a few decent birds to enjoy: a close Kingfisher at Fen Hide, and a Bittern and perhaps a dozen Snipe at Tower Hide. Lots of Redwings and Fieldfares as well as a flock of over thirty Blackbirds!

Last interesting species were Siskins, Goldcrests and Redpolls that made up a rolling flock by the entrance gate.
