A quick update today…

A small flock of bearded tits has been seen along Sandy Wall on Tuesday and Thursday, perhaps eight birds in total. While nowhere near the numbers of last year, it does give us hope that there are birds out there to recolonise the reserve.

2 pectoral sandpipers have spent the whole week at Buckenham Marshes, favouring the pool in front of the hide. These waders have travelled from either North East Siberia or America, either way it’s great to see them on the reserve!

Kingfishers have been showing well in front of Fen Hide most of the week.

Pink footed geese have been arriving from the North throughout the week.

Red kites, buzzards and a couple of hobbys have added to the drama in the skies.

Otters have been showing well this week too, with sightings near daily, two young otters were seen from Reception Hide on Friday afternoon.
