This Otter Trust owned site has huge potential and talking to the site warden Ben it seems there are some big plans for it so watch this space.
Ben was also kind enough to drive us onto the moor in his 4-wheel drive so we could get some lovely close views of the Cattle Egret! The Glossy Ibis wasn't quite so co-operative but we still had some nice scope views and I managed a record shot. Into the bargain there were 2 Green Sandpipers on the flood plus a Turtle Dove flew past. On an earlier attempt to get closer to the Cattle Egret field side flowers near Dickleburgh sewage works yielded 2 Brown Argus, Essex Skipper, Gatekeepers, Green-veined Whites, Small Whites and Large Whites.
All in all a very nice couple of hours out and now it's being managed and water levels being looked after I have a new local patch with a little potential. It was also a nice social with Dave Russell and the Dereham boys.
