Still lots to see at Strumpshaw Fen!

With plenty of muddy fringes and little islands, there's a good selection of wading birds at the Fen at the moment. At least two Great White Egrets still, as well as over a dozen Grey Herons. Several Green Sandpipers flew around 'peeping' and a flock of a dozen Ruff fed in the shallows. Snipe could be seen from all three hides today: some kind of record?

Other interest came from two species of deer, fly-through Sandwich Tern and Peregrine and lots of Marsh Harriers, including several Mick Hucknall impersonators!
