TL6986 : Birdwatchers

taken 12 years ago, 3 km from Hockwold Cum Wilton, Norfolk, Great Britain

Large numbers of people were visiting the reserve as there was a breeding pair of Cranes present and also Golden Orioles (which this group is looking/waiting for). The RSPB have only just publicised the reserve and opened up various paths (after a long period of habitat recreation), which has increased the number of visitors (as has the cranes' presence) though this is a public footpath which has always had access. It is an excellent place to visit for birds, with Marsh Harrier, Hobby, Garganey, Barn Owl, Grasshopper Warbler, Turtle Dove and Cetti's Warbler also seen (sad that Turtle Dove now qualifies for the list as interesting).
