I arranged to meet Tricia Saturday so waking up to driving rain was expected :D
We headed off to Welney, at least you can sit in the heated hide, but as we drove the rain came out and there was the odd blue sky.
Walking across the approach bridge we could see a Marsh Harrier - nice sign! There wer two about. Lots of Wigeon, the odd Mute and Whooper Swan. Some Black Tailed Godwit, a few Dunlin and a Pectoral Sandpiper!
We went to the next hides, the odd darter dragonfly about, plenty of Kestrels and Whooper Swans.
Had Potato & Leek soup which was ok. Tricia's coffee was luke warm. The WWT catering seems to be off of late if my experience of Barnes is anything to go by.
As Trish has never been to Ely we popped into the Cathedral. The cathedral is predominantly a norma construction.
The Masai were given an exhibition in the lady chapel.
Good day in good company.
