7th April 2013 - Boyton Marshes

Sunday was full, with 3 different bird watching visits.  That might explain my horrific downturn with the illness today, but it was worth it!  The second visit of the day was a fleeting, but productive visit to Boyton Marshes.  Many people were here hoping for a sighting of the White-tailed Eagle, from the day before, this was where it had last been seen the day before.  A good selection of ducks were around, with a few waders, Redshank, Snipe and Oystercatcher amongst others.  Both Pied and Grey Wagtail were seen and a Curlew flew over.  The best three birds came as we walked back to the car however, as Stuart spotted a Stock Dove perched in a tree and I finally got a sighting on some yellow birds I had seen when we first arrived.  They were a flock of Yellowhammer, a bird we don't usually see.  The final bird before we hopped in the car was Mistle Thrush, the first for the year.
