A walk at Wicken

Wicken Fen is becoming our 'go to' Sunday morning walk. We seem to find ourselves there at least once a month so it is interesting to see how it changes and what you can see changes. During the winter the flocks of migrating birds along with the short-eared owls are the obvious draw with lots of birders and photographers around.  During the summer it is quieter and as you first start to walk you wonder if you will see anything interesting at all. But it is there. The undergrowth is heavier, the trees are in leaf and the fens are tall with crops and reeds but if you listen and watch and look carefully you will find all sorts.
