So I was out early again today and started with a seawatch, disappointingly quiet, 1 Arctic Skua, 2 Arctic Tern, 8 Med Gulls and a few waders was it. So moved onto the disused railway, its a great spot down there and has massive potential, so massive I had a lifer here, Purple Hairstreak. Now we got these in Cumbria but I never bothered going to see them as It was like a twitch, but here its on my local patch, so that pleased me no end.  Not a great shot I no but it was high up in the oak and I only saw it 3 times, illusive bugger but wow what a place.

Also saw plenty of common stuff and this Migrant Hawker again.
The birds did put in an appearance today with excellent views of Green Woodpecker an even better views of 2 just fledged Sparrowhawks and there parents.
Did I ever say I love East Anglia ;-)
