Most of us had to work fairly hard to find any birds within range of our lenses and Fen hide and Patsy’s reedbed were disappointing as there was hardly a bird in sight!
We had more luck as we walked along the West bank path spotting various waders and wildfowl but most productive was the Beach, particularly towards the tidal creek at Saltmarsh, where there were plenty of obliging sanderlings, oystercatchers, godwits and gulls.
We met up for lunch at the cafe and enjoyed a variety of hot food and drinks then set out again before we lost the light. We were rewarded with a splendid sunset over the marshes and a glimpse of a distant harrier.
Some of our images can be seen below.
