A walk to Stiffkey Fen 15th September 2010

Stiffkey Fen is another little gem but takes a bit of effort to get to. A do not like parking in the narrow layby on the A149, so parked at Morston Quay, and walked about a mile to the fen. Significant feature of the day was the gale force wind that had me bent over like the elderly couple on the roadsign! Also, almost impossible to keep the scope steady.

The start of my walk saw a Peregrine hunting the marshes. Arrival at the fen was a treat, bent double, very cold with the windchill so it was up to the birds to cheer me up. I was not disappointed, with Green Sandpiper, Black Tailed Godwit, Ruff, Common Sandpiper, Avocet, Wood Sandpiper, Ringed Plover, Greenshank, Dunlin and Little Stint.
