Welney Wildfowl & Wetlands

Following an excellent weeks birding and migration spectacle in Yorkshire; predominantly Spurn, we started the journey south ourselves opting to spend the weekend in Norfolk on route.

We found ourselves at Welney; always a favourite by 2pm and spent a lovely few hours, until closing time (5pm today), enjoying the sites birds. Not all were photographed, but to mention just the raptors: Marsh Harrier (2), Common Buzzard (4/5), Peregrine (1), Sparrowhawk (1), Kestrel (1) and Merlin (1) and one can see why this site can be such a delight!
