Local Twitching

Bit disheartened with the patch this week so ive not really been around the whole site just small parts, ive been running parts of it but most of the time ive been covering the village and Corton Promenade.
It was good a nice change and still part of the patch just not one id cover very oftern. Anyway a nice Juv/female Black Redstart was a really nice surprise and a flock of 7 Bewick Swans were a patch find.
Anyway onto today and it was a bit of a local twitching day. Firtstly I had to wait in for my van windscreen to be fixed but then Rach and I had a walk along Breydon north wall where 4-5 Rough Legged Buzzards had been showing. After a good 2 mile walk we finally found 1 of the RLegs, then a second and possibly a 3rd but very distant. Good scope views were had of the slightly closer birds.

A Merlin, Kestrel and a couple of Chinese Water Deer were nice too.

Then I got the tweet a Hoopoe had been found at Kessingland, Doh!. We did spend some time with the buzzards before heading back a bit faster than we arrived.
Got to Kessingland to find the Hoopoe showing really nice although through a fence, it did eventually come out of the fenced area so I rolled off some shots before the DSLR boys started pushing there luck with the bird, so it was time to go before I got a bill for smashing a few grand's worth of lens`s.
3 Swallow, a Northern Wheatear and a flock of Brents were birds added to the day.
