Brandon Marsh ~ 2017

My first visit of the year to Brandon Marsh today with 51 species noted! These included Grey Wagtail and Green Sandpiper, which both flew over Ted Jury hide and from the comfort of East Marsh hide: Shelduck, (3) Pochard and Little Egret. After completing walks throughout the whole reserve other species of note included: Treecreeper, (2) Nuthatch, (30+) Siskin, (5) Lesser Redpoll! A Marsh Tit was calling around the nature centre, occasionally dropping onto the feeders!

A glorious sunset greeted me when I arrived back at the marina!
