    Norfolk birding

    Anyone know of any sites in Norfolk to see Rock Pipit please? Would be nice for the year list and not going to get the chance now to go North (Northumberland etc) or South coast where I've seen them regularly before. Don't recall seeing one in Norfolk before. Thanks Jonno

    Small Raptor in Ontario

    Thanks all. I was torn between Cooper's and Sharp-shinned. Though the size should have made me think Cooper's I had gone for sharpy because I didn't think the tail was long enough or rounded enough hence why I sought your opinions. :t: Thanks Jonno
