Ten members went on the trip and in spite of the strong breeze which blew throughout, it is fair to say that all enjoyed the day. We were also lucky because the two heavy rain showers occurred whilst we were in Ousefleet Hide and other than that, the day was mainly sunny.
We saw a total of 53 species on the day the highlights of which were the fantastic close views of Marsh Harriers and the hoped for sighting of a Grasshopper Warbler. In addition
we were able to view nesting Avocets and saw Sedge Warblers and Yellow Wagtails.
A couple of birds which might have been Bearded Tits were also observed, but the wind probably deterred these birds from venturing out of the cover of the reeds.
Thanks go to John Parlby for leading the trip.
