A great walk by Breydon Water this afternoon - started with two short-eared owls together, quite a number of curlew flying over from the water which I later found in a field of 150+, and the rough-legged buzzard (my first) hovering in the distance later obliged with a fly-past. And a stupid question - are the birds on the wire redpolls?
Incredible photos of the Rough Legged Buzzard.
I walked from Reedham to the Berney Arms pub and back again yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't see any Buzzards (not even a Common Buzzard suprisingly) or SEOs. I scanned eastwards towards Breydon but to no avail.
However, I did have a close encounter with a Ringtail Hen Harrier and a Barn Owl at dusk on the trudge back. There were also some impressively large flocks of Pink Feet flying in and feeding on the Berney Marshes as well as several small parties of Bearded Tits flitting around the reed beds.
There were 5+ Common Darter and 1 Migrant Hawker near Berney Mill.
