The first visit of the year to London Wetland Centre. In truth, it seemed very quiet with no sightings of any of the wintering specialities (Eurasian Bittern; WAter Pipit; Jack Snipe) during the day, so I was surprised to find that I had seen 37 species in the period of a couple of hours I was there.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of the visit was watching the pair of Peregrine Falcons hunting over the marsh and lake for about 10 minutes giving a wonderful display of acrobatics.
