Lacksford Lakes

With a few days off last week spent a few days in the east anglia region first stop was a visit to Lackford Lakes my first visit to this site though won't be my last.

Even before i got to the reserve was quite productive as I drove down the country lanes quite a few Red-legged Partridges and Pheasants where showing well along with a few Brown hares as well.

Started off well from the reserve centre with a singing Willow Warbler welcoming me as i got out the car. Walked around where I had plenty of warblers singing mainly Blackcaps and Chiff-chaffs with a few Sedge Warblers and Cetti's Warblers in song.

 Then came to the woodland where i heard the sound of a pair of Marsh Tits forging in the wood which I then found out why as people had been placing food on a nearby log where a selection of birds where coming down to feed with Nuthatch, Blue Tits, Great Tits and Chaffinches some of the birds using it as well as a Treecreeper and Song Thrush nearby.
