Brandon Marsh, arrived at 6.45am.
Species seen 43.
Arrived early at the East Marsh Hide to hopefully get to see the reported Spotted Crake, I didn't have to wait too long as it soon made an appearance. Some time later, the hide door opened and in walked a young couple from South Wales who had left very early, to hopefully see and photograph the bird. The young man asked if I'd seen it and very, very, calmly I quietly said, here you go, have a look, to say he and his partner were hyper is an understatement.
Noteables: Spotted Crake, Blackcap, Little Grebe, Oystercatcher, Cetti's Warbler, Chiffchaff, Fieldfare, Nuthatch.
