Nene Wash

Having been under the weather for the last few days we decided on a bit of fresh air at March Farmers on the Nene Wash where there was still plenty of water allowing us good views of 6 Spoonbill and 15 Little Egrets that were grouped roughly together when we first arrived. Also noted were 2 male Garganey, 20+ Black-tailed Godwit, plenty of Redshank, the odd Gadwall and a single Wigeon before a Red Kite stirred up a hornets nest flying over low, a wing-tagged bird it continued on to play havoc among the many Lapwings present further west of the wash. After brunch we had 3 Crane, 4 Marsh Harrier and a Hobby plus many more Little Egrets and added Meadow Brown, Red-eyed Damselfly and Black-tailed Skimmer to the year list.
