Minsmere

Started on the patch but again it was cold and damp and hard work. A small movement of Gannets, Divers and Cormorants with 2 Common Scoter on the sea.
Around by the New Sewage Works a Chiffchaff and 2 Grey Partridge.



So in a quandary to what to do I finally made the decision to nip to Minsmere for a few hours.
A nice bit of time spent at Island hide, Booming Bitterns, Marsh Harriers displaying and male and female Bearded tits.





An Adult Little Gull put in an appearance.




Walked up to North hide where 2 Jack Snipe were showing, (poorly) Video watch in HD. A nice summer plum Adult Med gull showed on east scrape.

I then headed for the beach but got distracted by a female Black Redstart.


 
The sun finally appeared so I went and had a hunt for Adders which showed nicely and even started mating and Dancing.






Left dog at home so I better head off early.
