Bittern, north Norfolk, 4th May
Tree Pipit, west Norfolk, 4th May
We spent most of the morning at Burnham Overy where a Spoonbill was in pools east of the staithe, at least 2 Whimbrels were knocking around and Little Terns were back in business.

Quite a few Swifts, Swallows and other hirundines were on the move, along with a few Yellow Wagtails and a heard-only Tree Pipit. In the dunes there were 2 Cuckoos (with presumably a third back at the staithe), a female Ring Ouzel (only seen males here up to now) and 6 Wheatears. Two Hobbies were hawking insects with Black-headed Gulls above the freshmarsh.

We had lunch at Creake Abbey where the food was very nice indeed (and worth the wait). A Red Kite flew over here. Later we popped in to Dersingham Bog briefly before taking our friend back to Kings Lynn station.

Back at work on Tuesday where I snatched a brief lunch break which included a Spoonbill over Brancaster Staithe.
