Mediocre Minsmere (Again!)

On Friday the 19th March, an afternoon visit to Minsmere Island Mere promised much with potential goodies on offer including Penduline Tits, Jack Snipe & Redhead Smew. I didn't see any of them. 
Compensation came in the form of a flying Bittern flying left and wheeling round right into the reeds just 30 feet from the hide, sadly my camera wasn't set up due to the crowded hide.
2 overflying adult Mediterranean Gulls calling flew over and left.
At the field entering Minsmere I counted 41 Fieldfare and 8 Redwing. 12 were also on telegraph wires at Wrentham and the layby field near Kessingland levels 12 Redwing and 8 Fieldfare seen perched atop some distant trees.
