Home Locality: Scarning Fen

Out the back of my house is an open area called Potter's Fen that leads onto the (small) NWT reserve of Scarning Fen. Scarning Fen is not renowned for its birdlife, although at least one Yellow-browed Warbler has been seen here.

This is an area I constantly neglect, so decided on a walk out there this morning. 32 species were recorded, including c 400 Fieldfare over, including one flock of c250. 4 different Marsh Tit were seen and 3 pairs of Bullfinch. A showy Treecreeper was with a tit flock and a Great Spotted Woodpecker's alarm call alerted me to its presence. A new bird for the year appeared in the form of a female Grey Wagtail along the stream. A single Common Snipe flew up from a ditch.
