Hoping to catch up with yesterday's pair of Garganey, I made a dawn start at the Fen. The early Sun soon turned to a misty overcast, followed by rain, so despite a walk out to Tower Hide (through the Somme-like mud!) the only new birds were a few Chiffchaffs. Lots of Cettis were calling and two Bitterns boomed at opposite ends of the reserve.
Nice to bump into ex-pupil and keen birder Tina (although chatting with her about families made me feel even older than my arthritic hip is doing!)
