A very poor performance from our starlings tonight with only 500 birds roosting in North Marsh. We'll let you know if they return, or if we find out where they've moved to

Our catering team have been busy and these beautiful shortbread reindeer are now in the cafe. They taste as good as they look too

We have about 4000 starlings at the moment. Not huge numbers but impressive when the peregrine and sparrowhawk attack. We're not aware of any bigger flocks locally

It was a good day for watching swans with six Bewick's moving from Island Mere to the Scrape and seven whoopers moving between Island Mere and the South Levels

Despite the dull weather, four species of tits are very active around the visitor centre - great, marsh, blue and coal - to keep visitors entertained before they brave a damp walk around the reserve (photos by Ian Barthorpe)

A family party of six whooper swans moved between the Scrape & Island Mere today, with three Bewick's swans in flight at Island Mere. Other highlights included a goosander on East Scrape, a glossy ibis flying north, the female blackcap at the visitor centre, & starlings at dusk

We have about 4000 starlings at the moment - you need to be here by 3.30 pm to watch them. Numbers and locations vary throughout the winter, so try to visit as soon as you know they're here - and keeping checking our pages for the latest information

This female blackcap was eating the apples again this morning - you can even watch her from the cafe! Our guide has also reported goosander, pintail, water rail & black-tailed godwits on East Scrape already

Some great views of Water Rails from the Island Mere hide this afternoon, usually rather shy and often hidden in the reeds, but not this one!
