A diary of my birding activity covering highlights and photos from my birding adventures. Mainly Norfolk (UK), occasionally beyond. I might mention the odd thing that isn't avian, but for moth and other insect news check out my mothing diary.

Nothing to report on the birding front since last weekend, though I did forget to mention that I popped in to Snettisham on the way back from Burnham Overy last Saturday.  I was hoping to see the Little Bunting but it hadn't been seen for an hour and the numbers of people present made it seem fairly unlikely that I was going to see it, or at least get good views of it.  Two Grasshopper Warblers could be heard reeling in the area and I saw my first Swifts of the year flying over, but I didn't give it long before giving up and heading home.

In today's lunch break I went up to Choseley to see if the Dotterels were still showing.  They weren't, but this young Peregrine was munching on a pigeon or something (don't think it was a Dotterel!) at the back of the concrete pad.

Also my first fledged young Dunnock in the garden when I got home.
