Cambridgeshire Fens


RSPB Ouse Fen

Called in here on the way home from our 'Oldham Birders' weekend and managed reasonable views of the Great Reed Warbler despite both the cool wind and the presence of a Cuckoo keeping the bird below the tops of the reeds. Bittern again heard but not seen. Looks a good habitat for a variety of species.

Fen Drayton.

Second call on our way home, where we had less luck connecting with the first summer male Red-footed Falcon that's been seen here on and off. Initial report around 10.00 a.m. then not seen until mid to late afternoon. At least 4 Hobbies present, Common Tern, Garden Warbler (final tick of the trip bringing our total to 123 seen and 3 heard only) and 2 more Cuckoos, one of them a vibrant 'hepatic' female.

Bus pass birdin' great innit?
