April 2018 An afternoon trip to Upton Warren a great nature reserve

I always enjoy a trip to Upton Warren reserve.  It is well looked after and maintained.  The bird species are amazing and often come in quite close to the hide.  I was hoping to see the Glossy Ibis that has been reported there.  On the board walk on the way to the flashes hide someone told me that it had just dropped in.  Unfortunately it stayed out of site in the reeds during my visit but there was plenty to see.

Getting so close to the Whimbel was a really exciting moment.
