Bittern at Woodwalton Fen NNR

© Neil Triggs
Woodwalton Fen NNR is one of two regular wintering sites in the Peterborough area, though with one being discovered at Tanholt GP in January, they are perhaps overlooked. It is however very rare to get such stunning views, let alone photos, like these which Neil has taken. Click for the bigger images.

These four Pink-footed Geese may well be genuinely wild birds rather than feral or escaped birds, as wintering birds in North Norfolk are currently moving out of the county.

A cracking find for Helen Wilson; this species is rare inland, in the winter.
