Cliff Swallow

Amazing that an America Cliff Swallow had turned up at Minsmere last night so I was lay in bed when news broke this morning that it was still present. Jumped out and headed quickly for Minsmere spotting 4 Waxwing in trees behind KFC in Lowestoft.
On arriving at Minsmere nerves were jangling but the bird was still on show and even better it was sat in a tree with 7 Barn Swallows. Bingo!!!
After 10 minutes it gave great flight views, what a stunning and unusual individual.

All the Swallows headed off South so I had a walk to the Bittern hide and it was nice to spot 7 Bewicks, Great White Egret a Green winged tagged Marsh Harrier (VD) and a couple of Brief Bitterns.

Back at Carlton Collville I had a quick look for the Waxwings again, just the best birds ever.

This Blackbird was nice too.

Back on patch it was WET! poured it down the whole time so called it a day.
