Bemusing Buzzard, majestic Marshie and confiding Cetti's!

A quick five-miler around Strumpshaw and Buckenham produced decent views of most of the 'usual suspects' (although we didn't see any of the single-witness Cranes, Storks or Great White Egrets!)

At least eight Marsh Harriers were displaying in front of Fen Hide, including a beautiful pale male: an atypically showy Cetti's Warbler was singing to the right of the hide for half an hour!

A really amazing pale - almost pure white - Buzzard drifted high east. If one were in southern France or Spain, one might consider Booted Eagle: a cracking bird in any case...

Buckenham produced a flock of twenty or so Fieldfares flying south west, two alba Wagtails as well as half a dozen Avocets. Still lots of Wigeon in the dykes, while four Common Buzzards displaying over the woods were good to watch.
