Another trip to wonderful Wicken Fen today in the heat .
We sat by the open water with the tips of our toes in the coolness . Above us and swooping in front of us were busy swallows looking like classic summer against the bluest of skys.
Coming out of the reeds opposite was an adventurous baby moorhen who used the water lily pads as his own highway . Later he wondered where his mum and siblings were and they glided over to find him. This little chap definitely had the spirit of exploring .
