We had a pleasant surprise at the A605/A1 service station when we bumped in to Keith, Jim, Pete and Trevor having a comfort break on a day away from Brandon Marsh heading the
Norfolk north coast looking for migrants.
We had decided not to be as adventurous choosing instead the tranquility of the Nene Wash where there may have not been a lot around but we had the place to ourselves and what we saw we had crippling views of.
Best was the Red Kite perched less than 100 yards away, 5 Marsh Harrier and 10 Buzzards hunting the patchwork of of recently cut meadows which kept the Snipe, Reed Buntings and Mipit’s on their toes and the only other wader species seen was a Black-tailed Godwit with a damaged leg. Redwing heard going over.
