On Friday 14th February, 8 Nature Group Members and partners explored Wicken Fen, hoping for images or at least sightings, of the Hen Harriers that roost in the reed beds in the winter. We spent the afternoon  walking the muddy paths seeing what else Wicken could offer before settling on the high observation platform to watch for incoming Harriers. Such excitemnt when first a female 'Ringtail' was spotted followed by a male quartering the reeds for a suitable spot to roost. We lost count of exactly how many eventually came in but certainly 3 males and possibly 2  females.
