WATER PIPIT at Fenlake Meadows

On Fenlake at lunchtime, the highlights were:

1 WATER PIPIT (on the area of recently cut sedges and puddles just east of the pools).

1 Common Stonechat (on the fence on the east side of the pool).

It's the area of water meadows to the south-west of Priory CP, on the southern bank of the Great Ouse.

it's best accessed from the small car park on the A603 Cardington Road, just by the junction with the B656. Walk north from the car park and there's a shallow pool and marshy areas that are usually good for Snipe. You'll need wellies because it's very wet underfoot.
