A visit to Brandon Marsh Nature reserve

Hobby, Brandon Marsh N.R.Hobby

Green Sandpipers

Saturday 9th July 2011

Had a pleasant couple of hours at Brandon Marsh Nature reserve on Saturday. The place was very quiet and I had the hides to myself for most of the time I was there. Carlton hide was the most productive with the build up of Green Sandpipers well underway, 5 were on show. There was also a Kingfisher, a pair of Redshank, a Common Snipe, Sparrowhawk and a Jay. Around the fringes of the reed beds there were good numbers of Whitethroat, Reed warbler and a family group of Linnets. On West Marsh a Hobby flashed through low and East Marsh was alive with activity, with Common tern, including several juveniles, Lapwing and Little ringed Plovers taking centre stage.
