A few pictures from today's trip to Lakenheath Fen on the way back from collecting work from the Gallery in Watton. The birds were a bit distant and there was a considerable heat haze. There were up to 6 Marsh Harriers and 10 Hobbies in the air at once some of the time. A wonderful sight. I am not sure what the Hobbies were feeding on as I only saw one damselfly (a red one) but the air was thick with Alderflies. There was also a Cuckoo in full song - the first I have heard this year.
