Went to Lakenheath Fen this morning. I hate Lakenheath Fen, its not the reserve its the fact that you tend to stand with other birders looking for one specific bird, Golden Oriole. It may also be the fact that everyone sees the things and I'm going "what" "where?". I did have one flash of a yellow bird.
I suppose I can now tick the thing and never go back.
I tend to like my birding to be quiet and away from other birders. Or rather not surrounded by other birders. I don't mind places like Titchwell or Minsmere.
Last year i arrived at Lakenheath at 6:30 to find an RSPB coach trip arrive at the same time. I promptly turned around and went somewhere else.
