Friday 23rd December
Had a look from Ness point hoping to see Purple Sandpipers, managed to find 4 birds which showed fairly nicely in the gloom.
Nipped back down to Oulton Broad where the Great northern Diver was still about but it was more distant so I didn't bother with any pictures.
Saturday 24th December
Had the day at Minsmere and started at Island mere but it was very quiet minus the 6 displaying Marsh Harriers a brief Water Rail and 4 Goosanders.
Moved onto the Bittern hide where I managed a yes Bittern but only briefly in flight a Kingfisher and a nice Otter too.
Onto the other hides where there was many ducks and a few waders, mainly Black tailed Godwit, a Knot and half a dozen Dunlin.
Onto South Levels where it was nice to go through the Gulls, 2 Adult Yellow Legged Gull, and a 1st Winter Caspian Gull.
2 Bewick Swans were a bonus.
I then stood on the beach and scoped the sea around Sizewell where I managed to pick up a Juv Glaucous Gull.
I was going to head up that way but luckily the bird came to me instead, picking up the Glauc behind east hide.
On the way back to the VC 6 Stonechats and then a nice Chocolate cake back at the Café.
Finished back at Island mere for the start of the Cracking Starling Murmuration.
Nice day with all the birds on site ticked off.
