a good day to be birding in Norfolk

feels good this morning even 'mega'. Lots of Redwings and Song Thrushes in the bushes and flying over especially on the West side. A ringtail Hen Harrier and a Wheatear in the Harbour, not enough time to check Friary Hills, will do that later. Continual thrushes flying over, then while watching a tit flock in the quarry West of Blakeney - nothing magic just Blackcap and Goldcrest, looked up to see a raptor being mobbed by some convids, brief views but distinct carpal patch , cuckoo-like head and rounded tail revealed HONEY BUZZARD- (well capital letters for me anyway ) - conditions similar to the influx two years? - currently NE winds on the back of the grotty weather yesterday that could have held them up. Hopefully weather will clear this afternoon to reveal a big fall
