With positive news from Suffolk, it was action stations and I headed to London to pick up Magnus A en-route to Carlton Marshes. Our timing was epic, the AMERICAN BITTERN taking flight with a Bittern just as we drew up to the crowd, most of whom had been waiting 10+ hours! Two Barn Owls were a welcome bonus, a couple of Marsh Harriers were quartering, five Snipe took flight and a Swallow flew through before we headed home triumphant!
