    Minsmere

    Cycled a few miles down the coast to Minsmere the RSPB nature reserve.
    What a fabulous place- we had a great day looking at all the bird life and there were lots of friendly people in the hides to tell us what were looking at.
    We saw - amongst others - all kinds of Teal and apparently a quite rare pair of Roseate Teal were there but we failed to pick them them out amid the thousands, kittiwake, gulls of every description, geese, ducks, avocet, godwits etc.
    We had a sighting of a chick Ruff by the waters edge, which looked scraggy. We also saw a hobby and a marsh harrier.
    We took a couple of pictures but realised that a big lens is required to do it properly.
