IN reply to A Isaacson's letter, I have been a wildlife leader for more than 20 years in Suffolk and here in Ely for the last 11 years I hope I can identify wildlife when I see it.

Mr Isaacson states he has never heard or seen a Bittern at Roswell Pits, I have been lucky enough to have seen one there, and he also states that there have never been any Marsh Harrier sightings.

As The Ely Wildlife Watch uses Roswell Pits for most of our meetings, I can confirm we have Marsh Harriers down as one of our regular sightings, as well as Blackcaps, Chiffchaff, Little Grebe, Kingfisher, Goldcrest, Daubentons Bat and on January 1, 2006 a Goosander and many more sightings.

Mr Isaacson is very welcome to join us on one of meetings, and if he has any young children or grandchildren they are very welcome as are all children are to see what wildlife there are on the doorstep in Ely. Our next meeting is on July 14 and is a minibeast safari. Meet at the Fisherman's car park at 2pm.
