Fen Drayton (24/6/12)

My second trip to Fen Drayton was more of a photography trip. Most of the time we ended up looking at Dragonflies and sometimes Butterflies. We had the odd warbler every now and then such as Whitethroat, Sedge Warbler, Cetti's Warbler (only heard) and Garden Warbler ( a year tick). There were also a lot of Common Terns which were skimming the water with their bills picking up the occasional fish and feeding their young. One female Common Tern had not quite got the hang of feeding its young instead it ate the fish by its self. As well as Warblers and Terns we saw some birds of prey, two of which were Hobbies and the other one was a Kestrel which hovered wonderfully next to the hide.
