That was alot better than my day overall:t: Although I did see the White-rumped Sandpiper from Dauke's hide at Cley late afternoon.Bit better today, Five Bramblings Great Yarmouth Cemetary. a Firecrest but mobile with Goldcrests flock, c40 Blackbirds
Theres a whole thread in this and there was one on birdforum about how to find stuff I'll try to dig it out, but, as I'm sure my good Statton Birder :t: doubtless agrees with when it finally pays off its completely worth it!
Nice comparison pic of Shag & Cormorant
Birdguides reporting a Night Heron over Strumpshaw at dusk yesterday. Were there not reports of bird/s from last year?
Was at the fen at dawn this morning, coincidentally checked my pager when I got there and thought it was well timed for a change with the possibility of a night heron!
No sign of any possible Night Heron this morning though. I do not know who heard the bird but in my previous experience these unseen calling birds frequently turn out to be gull calling bitterns circling the fen (many people seem unfamiliar with a Bitterns call), I do hope I am proved wrong though!
2 Waxwings still on sandy wall near fen hide this morning, a nice image with the sun rising behind them although made photography tricky! Otter also put on a nice performance and it looks as if a white bellied Marsh harrier has moved into the fen. I wonder if this was one of the odd MR's I depicted earlier in the year in the North Broads? Still very odd looking.
In the words of Penny, update and more pics on my blog...
There were staggering numbers of Shags around Cromer Pier
Hopefully won't be removed for not being to do with Norfolk as it is an important issue.
