Sculthorpe moor

This was a new reserve for Ken and Tim, and both agreed it was a great place to visit. It is run by the Hawk and Owl trust and has many hides and lots to see, it is also a good place to go to get away from a strong wind and see some good birds. We had views of Marsh tits, a bank vole venturing out from it's hole to snaffle s grain of seed and scuttle back. The juvenile bullfinch above was the boss of the bird table and seemed quite unperturbable. The highlight here though was this early migrant from Scandinavia a superb Brambling. The resident Golden pheasants and Willow tits managed to avoid us.
