First visit this year (and since last September). Sorry to see the central lake has not risen back to its pre-drought levels. A bit of a desultory day. Saw a group of lapwings and heard numerous song birds in the trees (saw very few of them). I did see a Yellowhammer in the distance but not up close and also swifts dive bombing the lake searching for bugs. The best few moments was this reed bunting which serenaded the hide a few times. Fowlmere is always a pleasant walk but for twitching on that day it was a bit disappointing. You can't win 'em all.
