Tentative walk at Buckenham Marsh

I really have been rather unwell for a week or so: the weekend at the IAS knocked me right back. Today I felt I should take some exercise, so I made the short walk from Buckenham Station to the hide and back. It was a glorious afternoon and the raptors were out in force: Buzzards, Red Kites, Kestrels, Sparrowhawks and Marsh Harriers were much in evidence. One of the Buzzards had a white undertail: it looked a lot like a Rough-leg...

A flock of Redwings flew over and half a dozen Ruff dropped onto the scrape: no sign of the Pec Sands while I was there, though.Skein after skein of Pink-footed geese wiffled down onto the marsh: always a great thing to see.
