A bit of a late getaway for a week in Norfolk which was geared around a talk (work) whilst chilling with plant friends on the plant scene (rest) then getting amongst the birds - play :-)
The late getaway was significant as the Red-necked Phalarope present first thing did a flyaway!! There were plenty of the regulars present (Avocet, Blackwits etc) and of course Marsh Harriers!
After taking in their antics quartering the reed beds....
I got one of my closest ever encounters!
No shortage of Spoonbills in the area (11 seen!) Often mobile and here's three engaged in synchro formation :-)
Choseley Barns produced my first Turtle Dove of the year - record shots on the ground and then on the wires!
It's back to try and improve on my Spectacled Warbler images in the morning.....
