|Paul in the Flooded Fenland of Manea|
Paul was pleasantly surprised by the sight of the flooded fenland at Manea. We walked along the dyke between the two waterways. One river's bank is allowed to burst onto the field and flood each year as it is a natural flood plain. This is a fabulous place to go bird watching and Paul decided to come along and give it a go.
I had my camera and we were not disappointed. We saw a couple of Common Buzzards and got some splendid shots of a kestrel hunting the fields behind the other river. It made for a grand afternoon out. Carole, my wife, was with us and the infamous dotty dog Dotty. The excitable little dog was tearing up and down the path barking away at gulls.
Some of the photos were very pleasing indeed.

The Goldfinch were here too
And the Blue Tit was not going to miss out either.
