Rutland Water

Homeward bound after spending three days in the Norfolk and Suffolk area and still the sun was shining. Stopped off at the Lyndon side , paid my permit picked up on Large Red Damselfly at the centre and moved off towards the Wader Scrape Hide.

The most common bird on the walk down to the hide was the Whitethroat along with Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps. Near the hide I found a Garden Warbler which eventually gave its self up and gave good views, also a Treecreeper in the same area.

From the hide the Ospreys could be clearly seen, better with a scope, the Male was nearby with the female on the nest. Also from the hide were, Mallards, Tufted Duck, Mute Swans, great Crested Grebe, Cormorant, and Black headed Gulls.

That was the end of a few days tour of Norfolk/Suffolk areas, fingers crossed that I can do similar next year.

Bird List : Blackcap, Black headed Gull, canada Goose, Chiffchaff, Common Tern, Cormorant, Dunnock, Garden Warbler, Great Crested Grebe, Greylag Goose, Herring Gull, Mallard, Mute Swan, Osprey, Pheasant, Robin, Sedge warbler, treecreeper, Tufted Duck, Whitethroat, Willow Warbler, Wren
