Dawn 'til Dusk (part II): morning in the Fens

After a successful start to the day, next stop was Lakenheath RSPB. I had not been here for some years so the new visitor centre and improved access were a pleasant surprise. No luck with Golden Oriole or Cranes - the former have apparently been quite difficult to see this year - but good numbers of Marsh Harriers and this young male Bearded Tit (left) were good to see. The walkways cut through reeds behind the visitor centre were very good for dragonflies and warblers, including this Reed Warbler (below) which posed briefly but well for the camera. Two Cuckoo still singing also on this excellent reserve.
