I moved onto the broad where It took ages to find the Slav Grebe and when I did it was miles away, as far away as it could be on the Broad.
Whilst looking for the grebe ticked 9 Bewick Swans again. Also 4 Adult Little Gulls.
A lot of gulls came into the field pick of the bunch was this 1st Winter Caspian Gull.
Just to the left of this birds was a very unusual looking gull, almost Glaucous winged but more likely a Northern argentatus or pale Herring or Viking Gull, it had strikingly grey Primaries with much white. Some experts may be able to help. some more pics below, click to enlarge.
I did half hour seawatching picking out 8 Little gulls going South a flock of 3, 1 and 4, then just about to leave a Sooty shearwater went North.
Walking back I checked the pig fields again, Adult and 1st Winter Caspian this time in a very quick check.
Had lunch at Minsmere then headed to Iken for a Cattle Egret that got found yesterday, maybe the Sea palling bird I saw last year. A nice bird although shame about the pouring rain grrrr.
Back to work tomorrow Booooooo
