Lakenheath RSPB

On another warm glorious day, Cuckoo appeared to be everywhere, calling from around the reserve and pairs seen dashing across the fen.

An initial sighting of a Hobby then turned into two before walking up to the Joist Fen Hide where there were up to 25 birds hawking insects over the reedbed.

There were at least four Marsh Harrier including a couple of splendid male birds.

Bittern were heard booming and all the common warblers were in song, establishing territory and providing a symphonic soundtrack to a wonderful reserve.
