Nick Bowman arranged a Nature Group outing to Titchwell RSPB reserve last Friday. Unfortunately he woke to find his car had been stolen so I was handed the leadership of the group - a pleasure on a wonderful sunny day and a very friendly group. We spent the morning around the reed beds photographing dragonflies, other insects and Marsh Harriers.

In the afternoon, we walked down to the beach and waited until the mussel beds were revealed and the waders flocked in to feed
