Titchwell Marsh Yesterday 0708812

Just wanted to take a moment to mention what a fantastic reserve this is. We've not been there for nearly 2 years and since then the hides and trails have been opened up, just superb facilities and superb views. Anywhere that has a beach at the end of the trail is always going to do well with Deb and me. But 10 out of 10 to all the staff and volunters, I think we spent 7 hours there yesterday, something of a record for us.

Would also like to extend our thanks to the various other birders that were out and about and offered us so much help in identifying , what was for us, around 8 or ten new species. They really dont look the same in real life as they do in the book. Especially in this plummage transition time and with the juvenilles developing their matture plummage.

Learnt a lot, saw a lot and walked a lot. Still no Bearded Tit or Bittern so I guess we will just have to come back again. We look forward to it.

Slow down, look closer, appreciatte more.
