I’ve just had the most AMAZING morning. Very wet, but truly AMAZING! We’ve just been to visit one of our marsh harrier nests in the reedbed. Not only that, but we installed our live feed camera there too, so you can watch it for yourself! ( http://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/l/leightonmoss...

Valentine's Day Sightings
We've not heard any sound of our smitten bittern making his loved ones' hearts' boom yet (profuse apologies for another terrible double pun). However, there have been lots of bittern sightings reported over the last few days. Public and Lilian's hides seem to be the hot spots at the moment...

Well I have found my gloves so I am now back to my full complement of outdoor wear (and due to current conditions I have certainly needed them!) I apologise for the lack of sightings updates but I have been down at The Lodge in Sandy, enjoying a look around the RSPB headquarters and getting a closer...
