NORWICH: Sweetbriar Marshes

18th May 2011

It was a dreary looking afternoon, but I decided to go for a quick walk before tea. I decided to walk from Andersons Meadow to Sweetbriar, a walk which i should have done much more than I have now I'm living over this part of the city. On my way a Little Egret flew over from the direction of the Waterworks, a notable record for the city. It began to drizzle, but a few warblers were singing, I managed Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap and Whitethroat. Further on I found a woodpeckers nest with calling chicks, and a photogenic Banded Demoiselle was sheltering amongst the reeds.
