Just a mere walk away!
It’s just a half hour walk to the edge of the Minsmere RSPB Reserve. RSPB staff report that some surprise sightings have kept staff and visitors on their toes. The bitterns have been putting on a good show at Island Mere. One spent such a long while so close to the hide that at least one of the regular photographers struggled to fit the whole bird into shot! An otter was also sighted as was a great white egret. The starlings continue to swarm (though currently only 30,000 at the moment – How do they count them!)
