February 8th

My first trip to Stodmarsh since late October! I managed to hobble to the Reedbed Hide, finding a pair of Bullfinches along the way. A singing Cetti’s Warbler  was near the Hide, which gave good views of a Little Grebe, a pair of displaying Great Crested Grebes and a good scatter of Teal , Gadwall and Mallard. At least 4 Marsh Harriers kept me amused, and one really excellent male Hen Harrier crossed the lake from the Tower hide area.  I also managed to see a Bittern taking a leisurely flight towards the Cormorant Trees.  I pottered on to the Alder wood and went a little way in hoping for a few small birds, but only managed Green and GS woodpeckers and the usual tits , robin and singing Song Thrushes. A nice steady walk in site of the damp!!
