Buckenham Marsh

After another beautiful Broadland sunrise, Linda and I had lots of chores to catch up with: nevertheless, we popped out before lunch for a quick scan of the grazing meadows at Buckenham.

Not much to report: several species of wader included half a dozen Avocets and two very bright Ruff, while a few Wigeon still lingered on the distant Hide Pool. Plenty of Linnets, Swallows and Cetti's Warblers, but nothing new seemed to have arrived.

Back home we enjoyed the sight of Shrek, one of our resident Pheasants, (I'm sure you can see how he got his name!) several Starlings and a Rook enjoying the plentiful supplies of food and water. A wren has nested in one of the beech hedges from where he sang for most of the afternoon, while a female Marsh Harrier glided across the fields behind our bungalow...
