Having met up with Brian this afternoon we head off to Paxton Pits Nature Reserve in Cambridgeshire. Sixty miles later and we are parked up in the car park and heading off along the Heron Trail. Before arriving at the Washout Pit, we can already hear the Great Reed Warbler blasting out it's song. We join the small group of birders already present and scan the reedbeds opposite. It wasn't long before the bird was found, at first low in the reeds then higher as it made it's way up the reed stems into full view.

As we walked back towards the car park a Turtle Dove flew up and headed across the tree tops for a bonus year tick.
