Minsmere RSPB - 17.5.15

Brown Argus
After the excitement of yesterdays lifer came a Watford RSPB coach trip to one of my favourite reserves up in Suffolk. The birding started before we had even arrived as I spotted a Stone Curlew in a field to the right of the entrance track! Once on the reserve a Marsh Tit was added to the year list along with many Cetti'sWarbler, 4 Bittern, 4 Treecreeper and a few Marsh Harrier. Other highlights for the day included 8 Bearded Tit, 8 Little Tern, Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Little Gull, a 2nd Summer Mediterranean Gull, a colour-ringed Kittiwake, a stunning summer plumaged Grey Plover, 2 late male Wigeon, LRP, Curlew Sandpiper and a Great White Egret. I also added 2 new butterfly species with Brown Argus and Small Heath.
