But first things first. We drove down the access track and enjoyed an extremely close Marsh Harrier flyby. Unfortunately the rest of the day's Marshies really kept their distance. We went into most of the Burrowes Pit hides, from where we saw nothing terribly exciting.
Also on the pits were a few moulting Mallards and Shovelers, several Great Crested Grebes, the usual Cormorant gang, a couple of distant Ringed Plovers, Greylag Geese and Lapwings.
UK Moths and will have another go later. ETA - Lackey moths! Thank you Shane :)
We took Hobby photos almost everywhere, but the path between Christmas Dell hide (where, incidentally, an invisible Lesser Whitethroat was singing) and Denge Marsh hide offered the best views.
We finished with a walk to the viewing screen/hide thing. The water in front of the hide is much diminished and there were no birds within close range. However, it soon became apparent that Swallows were nesting in the corner of the hide.
