Well this Whooper seems to like Northumberland


A brilliant day and a very lucky one.

Started with a brace of Marsh Harriers. I knew they were around but have failed to connect until today. After a wander around the South Pool hoping to photograph Harriers failing but managing to capture this Hare. I headed back to the car.


Just before visiting the North Pool a last glance over the south pool proved fortuitous. Three birds lifted vertically from the reeds, no mistaking this sight! 3 Bearded Tits flew over my head across the track and towards the North pool calling as they went. Amazing!

I sprinted (yes ... sort of sprinted) towards JA who had managed not to notice the birds fly by him. As far as I know they weren't seen again. Looking back to last year's blog, I found one on 2nd March (near the feeding station) but it was 9th before I saw another. Hopefully I'll relocate these birds a little sooner. Guess where I'll be tomorrow morning!
