Lewis and Carter

After the disappointment of blowing out on a trip to Minsmere with Dave Cole we had to settle for a
sunny autumnal afternoon at Maple Lodge.Prior to leaving the regular red kite did its daily flypast.
already getting a nickname Red Arrow as it cruises  across an azure sky.
Met Paul around 12 30 hrs and we walked to the Teal hide where some were having tea others about
to leave ,some concerned about the foliage making viewing difficult.
There were 3 Green sands 2 Snipe a host of teal all present along with a pair of Kingfishers,also
heard only a Cettis warbler and a female reed bunting singing.

Moving to Long hedge we encountered little and great crested grebes numbers of black headed gulls and up to3 little egrets,2 ring neck parakeets flew over strangely silent.
Before heading back the kingfishers obliged but distant even for long lenses ,but overall
a splendid few hours at the lodge.
