Off to Norfolk for the weekend with Carol and Christopher at 1800hrs good views of Barn and Short eared Owls behind Cley Windmill,plus a flock of displaying Avocet.
Early the next morning birding along Coast Guards road we heard a Bittern booming,after breakfast at Wells car park in cold windy conditions we saw a male Parrot Crossbill feeding young in the pines
and later drinking from puddles.
We returned on the 4th and 5th of May,mostly a weekend searching for Serin,the Parrot Crossbills were still there and we managed a fleeting glimpse of Serin.
Carol and Chris showed extreme patience with me over the weekend I played with Chris and Carol in the pines and beach to end a lovely weekend.
