Marsh Camp - Week 2: Day 1

Today was a great day at camp, luckily it's a bit cooler this week than last week, or at least we had a bit of a breeze today. We started camp with 32 species, two more than the first day of camp last week, the Cattle Egret was the last one on the list, we were alerted by a birder who led us out to see it. I think the last time we saw Cattle Egrets at Marsh Camp I was a camper myself! They've been declining in recent years.
