    Kites Does anyone have any counts of Kite roosts from around the county? I was surprised to count 12 a couple of miles West of Norwich today coming to roost. Be interested to know how many are roughly in county.

    Hi Jake, as we have met twice that's a bold statement. Once I let you look through my scope and use it to take a picture with your phone at the BWP when it frequented Cley (nice of me) and once you and Danni? stood talking to Kieran about a subject I had no involvement in/interest in for about...

    My thoughts exactly Jim - just Jake Alienating himself from every Norfolk birder again.

    Our Turtle Doves do indeed migrate through the Western Fly-way I believe and are generally not shot at during Spring migration. The Spanish and French are far from innocent however and large numbers are shot each Autumn. It is quite easy to find Anglo-Hispanic companies that will gladly offer...

    "Monty tick" is enough to stop me telling you. I urge people not to give away sensitive information on our rarest breeding species.

    I apologise if a little rude and sadly I am not the man you are after. I believe I have met him in the field and apart from him having a good name do not know him. You seem to get quite upset if people give you a one word answer or bother to help you or correct your pictures so I am not sure...

    David, Your blog says "you won't be submitting it" - that is what I went on, I care not if it was accepted. Where are the "rare" birds you have found - give me some evidence. You are always turning the common into something rare - it never is. I have heard you claim Sabine's gull which it...

    Hi David, I read your comments and Ben's very thorough reply this morning - personally I think Paul was right to support Ben but that is not relevant here. It is great to see your passion of the area - I too enjoy going to this area and did so recently having stopped for a while due to the...

    Red kites NN Has anyone noticed a lack of Red Kites in the NN area? Last year it was very easy to see at least 4 birds around Edgefield tip with higher numbers being reported. A post on birdingworld shows a red kite which appears to be missing several feathers + in a similar stage of "moult"...

    Why is that ironic? Hickling is well worth a visit at the moment - as is getting the boat trip out to the hides. Sat/Sun volunteering there brought in several cranes, cuckoo, bittern, hobby, swallowtails and white admiral + lots of returning wader including: 12+ ruff, 3 greenshank, 1...

    Not a bad day at Cley with Arnold's Marsh packed with ringed plover and Dunlin. A little gull alighted in front of Bishop's hide at midday but there was little else of note. I managed to miss the GWE and a hen harrier. There is a sweet family of mice/voles near Bishop's which I enjoyed...
