A Positive Start.
Theres no better way to put things right than to talk. So i will kick off my new blogg with a positive note A meeting was arranged with English Nature represented by Becky, Steve,and Ben which was attended by many regulars and a chance was given for us to air our concerns about the lack of maintenance etc they were keen to listen to all the concerns that we had, and indeed made many understandable as to why we had them in the first place.I look forward to their approach and hope we can get this wonderful area back to its former glory.Today i arrived at the car park Stodmarsh, making my way along the track to the reedbed hide,Turtle Dove,Chiffchaff, Blackcap, and a young Green Woodpecker were seen on route.From the hide not much to be seen,Grey Heron Carrion Crow, two Water Rail was about as good as it got.I left and walked along the path leading on to the Lampern Wall ,there are not many places to look across the marsh here due to the tall trees, something hopefully to be put right soon, i did see three young Marsh harrier over the marsh hide.Further along i spent some time with the camera with Reed Warbler that were camera shy so after a while a rumbling stomach got the better of me and i headed home for a bacon sandwich. .July is hard going both watching and photographing birds however the coming weeks should give me more to look forward to with autumn migration fast approaching.
