On the track down to the Yare, I paused to scan each dyke: the nearest one to the hide held a female Garganey and five ducklings: they were too far away to photograph, sadly. Just slightly nearer (and not skulking in the reeds!) were 60+ Black-tailed Godwits and a few Ruff, while another Kite, a Marsh Harrier and another Buzzard followed the previous group along the valley.
Insects included hundreds of Common Darters, Azure and Variable Damselflies and a few Ringlets and Wall Browns.
Strumpshaw added little to the list apart from a large Stickleback in the dipping pond!
