A cold but sunny day, which was enhanced by the array of birds I saw on my latest visit to the reserve. It was nice to hear the small birds chirping within North Marsh woods.
I had seen the Little Egret on the Tophill Low blog, so wanted to try and see it for myself, and I wasn't to be disappointed - although it was a bit too far away for a good photo.

This Heron paid a short visit to Hempholme meadow, but he was soon off again
Great Crested Grebe on O res - I also saw Tufted Duck and Wigeon
This lovely Barn Owl flew towards me as I headed towards Watton Burrows
Goldeneye on D res, also Goosander
Goosander - Female
Goosander - Male
Long Tail Tit - always tricky to photograph as they move too quick!
