Strumpshaw, January

A cold and dull day at Strumpshaw in January but still we saw plenty of marsh harriers, beginning to pair up and flirt and show off, and a kingfisher (too quick for a photo), and plenty of ducks. Half of the reserve was flooded so we couldn’t get around a lot of it.

  1. Nice feel to the RSPB place. Shame you couldn’t walk around all of it due to flooding. The Marsh Harrier is my favourite i must say.. Glorious to look at it.
    the reed grasses look stunning with the blue back drop of the lake.
    A wonderful sight, and a wonderful place it looks like.
