Wicken Fen

Dyke and wind-pump, Wicken Fen

House Sparrow


My first visit to Wicken Fen proper today (after a pre-work twitch of the displaying Buff-bellied Sandpiper there a few years ago).

In summary:

Squacco Heron: hiding
Little Egrets: grumpy
Konik ponies: fighting
Weather: hot
Hairy Dragonflies: everywhere
Painted Ladies: migrating
House Sparrows: tame, and dining on a superior standard of discarded sandwich and cake crumb
