Lakenheath haven for the Bittern

At Lakenheath today we had three flight views of the Bitterns along with several views of the constantly calling Cuckoo. No Cranes today but we did find a smart drake Garganey on the scrape. A single Hobby was seen flying in and then sitting in a tree to give good scope views and the reserve was alive the sound of Bearded Tit, Cetti's, Sedge and Reed Warbler along with Whitethroats.

The biggest surprise came when the warden opened the loo door only for a Mole to come running out which I think is the first time I've actually seen a live one and not where I'd have expected to see it.

Year list now 212

Reed Bunting
Sedge Warbler
