Arrived Minsmere around 0930hrs we walked towards the beach where we were greeted by 7 snow buntings in flight,a little further on we met Malcolm Currie a former member of Maple Lodge now living in Suffolk.Up to four calling Cetti's warblers burst in to song around the reserve.Shelduck were displaying on the brackish marsh was unusual to see, as was 5 smew including 4 red heads and one drake.
It was cold so a quick cup of tea and food before moving through the woods to island mere hides where marsh harriers obliged on the mammal front Polish ponies Mad March Hares and Red deer.
Marsh tit on the feeders as we left around 1430hrs.
