So plans were made for a good long night's sleep in a hotel and for a visit to RSPB Minsmere before we headed back up to Yorkshire! I was so focused on the BTO Bird Camp I had totally forgotten what happens in the Spring at Minsmere: Springwatch! How could I have forgotten?! Well I saw the tweets about a week before Bird Camp which was great and got in touch and they said they hoped to see me while I was there. In the background Dad was busy emailing and we received an invite to be in the Unsprung audience so I was really excited about that as well as visiting Minsmere.

We got to have a little look behind the scenes and at the studio. That was quite exciting too.
Well it wasn’t even dinner time so we went back on to the reserve to see what else was about. It was a great day for nature. I saw 60 species that day on the reserve and 3 new lifers – a Sandwich Tern, Long Tailed Duck and a Mediterranean Gull. The Purple Heron decided to be elusive though.
