The Joy of something new!

The requirement of having to go to Southampton, presented a well cool opportunity to spend  three days at one the RSPB's premier reserves. The prospect of Bittern, Bearded Tits and harriers let alone the waders and possible deer on the reserve with Dartford Warblers in the vicinity it had the makeup of an exciting weekend.

A most exacting challenge was spotting a Cetti's Warbler low amongst the reeds, HA! more chance of meeting the moomins!! whilst the Passerine count was very low considering the local.

So lets have a look at what was got!
