Egrets Owls and other stuff

So ill begin by adding a sighting i had yesterday but forgot to mention, 6 Red Kites in one group in North Norfolk at North Creak

So onto today Rach and I started at Halvergate Marsh where we saw 4 Cracking Cattle Egrets. Unfortunatly views were always into the sun.

After a nice lunch at the Bell Inn St Olaves, we had a walk onto Haddiscoe Island to look for some Owls and anything else that may be in the area. On the walk down the river bank the light was great and a group of 8 Bearded Tits showed nicely. In the distance sat on posts were 2 Female Peregrine, Kestrels and 2 Common Buzzard.

Further down the river there were at least 5 Short Eared Owls all a bit distant but great to watch.


On the way back a Green Sandpiper flew over calling as did a Snow Bunting which did a circuit of the bank and then finally a nice Barn Owl. The other thing of note were the 30+ Chinease Water Deer, they were everywhere. A really nice day and i must visit this area again for the Owls, with time and patience good views could be had.
