Dawn at the fen

An early wake up for some reason today, it looked clear although still dark so I knew it would be a nice  morning to have a walk around the fen.
It was fairly quiet and crisp, the highlights are pictured below, also saw 2 Kingfishers, 1 Bittern, 1 Water pipit and the white bellied Marsh harrier (possibly the same bird that I pictured in the north broads in the summer?)


  1. Super shots there Ben.
    As you have probably read, I had the Harris Hawk at Surlingham Marsh yesterday. Seems quite settled in the area.
    I noticed you guys have cut back some reeds at SCM, revealing some likely looking muddy banks for a Water Pipit. Many thanks!

  2. I thought you might appreciate a bit of ditching. We had to take a digger over there to get a dead cow off the marsh so thought we'd do some impromptu ditch clearence, it should get water moving round the site a little better.

    PS congrats on your big news!
