Strumpshaw Fen 06/03/10

Currently a popular destination for us on a Sunday!
Highlights today included stonking views of 3 male Bullfinch feeding in bushes at the start of the Meadow Trail. Probably the best views of Bullfinch I have ever had! Later presumably the same 3 flew over our heads, heading across the river I would guess. A single Marsh Harrier was pursued by a Crow from Fen Hide, and here Gadwall and Teal were quite confiding. Back at the vistor centre, a single Marsh Tit was heard then seen around the feeders amongst the commoner species. Bittern had been seen in the morning and Brambling had apparently been seen near the feeders, but not by us.
