On the way back to London from Lincolnshire, we stopped again at Welney Wetlands reserve in Norfolk. We had hoped of seeing a Common Crane that had been seen earlier that morning but it remained hidden during our visit. The highlight was seeing a Little Ringed Plover on a nest and a Western Marsh Harrier.
