RSPB Strumpshaw Fen - Thursday May 16th

Over 20 of us met up for a return visit to RSPB Strumpshaw Fen.  We were a bit earlier in the season than our last visit and following a rather chilly spell of weather there were noticeably fewer birds, flowers and insects. However, with some perseverance, we managed to find some suitable subjects to capture!
