  • Blog Post: A new duck in town

    While checking how many wintering ducks were still present on the reserve (a couple of pintail and small numbers of shoveler, teal, wigeon and mallard) I noticed a broad white stripe poking out of the vegetation.

  • Blog Post: 2nd August 2010. Anything could happen…..

    The two spoonbills that flew in last night were still present this morning elegantly sweeping their oversized beaks from side to side as they feed on the saltmarsh pool. I'm sure John and Judith will be adding photo's of these striking birds at some time so watch this space. Also on the pool...
  • Media: Signs of Spring - Campfield Marsh RSPB Reserve 3rd April 2010

    It was taken from one of the screens overlooking a pool on the lonning and shows Willow catkins and Yellow Flag Iris shoots emerging from the water. Both signs of Spring
