The Birdwatching Group visit Stodmarsh

The Birdwatching group had their first outing of the year last Friday at Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve. This was the first visit by the group and it proved to be a lovely location.
Six members spent the morning doing a circular walk around the Grove Ferry end of the reserve, walking along the riverbank for part of the way, where we saw a number of butterflies and dragonflies. We also had good views of first a male and then a female Marsh Harrier.
Lunch stop was the picnic site at Grove Ferry and then, after a short drive, we visited the Reedbed Hide at the Stodmarsh end of the reserve with views of Teal and Great Crested Grebes.
All in all a great day, enjoyed by the group.
