What a surprise today at the Vale.  Around 1015 hrs, I walked into the Vale, and saw a wren in area that is flooded.  It took me a while, to ID it but finally I got it: Marsh Wren.

I took some semi decent pictures, just to document its presence in the park.  By the way, in all these years of birding in PP, it is my first time I see this species of wren here.

Later, I came back around 1 pm, found the bird again, and 3 other birders got to see it, too.  After this, Tom S. and part of the BBC Thursday bird walk group came, and got the chance to see it.  I left the Vale past 2pm.

Here are my lousy pictures.  Enjoy them
