Back on the patch: an unexpected Osprey at Strumpshaw!

A very brief session at Strumpshaw began in Fen Hide, where I met with Brian, Norman and Brian Shreeve. Plenty of good-natured banter, enlivened by an ever-present ('though distant) Kingfisher, several Herons, two Chinese Water Deer and a Cormorant or two.

After a while we decided to walk to the end of Sandy Wall to look for Bearded Tits: didn't connect with them, but I did pick out a distant Osprey flying south across the Yare.

Tower Hide was back to its usual depth, so no waders other than ten Snipe dozing on the grass in front of the hide.
