Minsmere (part 2)

I don't recall any other place that I have camped with the motor-home and managed to see Marsh Harrier, Barn Owl, Red Kite, Buzzard x 2, Green Woodpecker, and Cuckoo all before 8-30 am from the van doorway.
Anyway here's my alarm clock
On our way to Minsmere we stood on a small bridge and watched the Banded Demoiselles dancing between the reed stems.

This Demoiselle was a little larger with a broader wing and does not show the white dots on the wing which leads us to believe it could be a Beautiful Demoiselle!.
Our goal for the day was to try for the Dartford Warbler on Dunwich Heath, here's a few birds we spotted on the way.

We believe this to be a young Whichat ! which  was absolutely stunning.
The Dartford Warblers proved elusive at first but did manage a few distant shots.

Did we have a great time !! (we sure did)

thanks for looking.
