Hello from Edgbaston

Hello everyone,
Having recently returned from a trip to the Norfolk coast where I witnessed some incredible wildlife - grey seals, wild boar, stoat and awesome Marsh Harriers I've decided it's high time I reconnected with my first love as a child which is wild birds. Now to brush up my ID skills which are decidedly rusty!

We saw two (although it could have been the same one) as it was in the same area on two different occasions. One actually crossed the road in front of us on the A149 between Titchwell and Holme, the other was spotted at the RSPB Titchwell Reserve on New Years Day.
