Nipped out of the area today, visiting Iken as a White Tailed eagle had roosted here overnight. No sign of it but i did find a really good bird in the form of a Red Headed Smew. 2 Goosander and 15 Goldeneye were also a nice surprise. Iken was good for waders with 350+ Avocet, 40 Bar tailed godwits with 1 summer plumage bird.
Carried on to Hen Reedbed where a Great White Egret flew over and a Bittern flypast.
On the mud an Adult Med Gull. Travelling home there was an accident blocking the A12 at Limeball lane, so we cut accross here and spotted the 8 Whooper Swans that had been here a while now.
As we were passing Minsmere i though it rude not to nip in for the 2 Bewick Swans on Island Mere. Winter Swans ticked.
Not a bad day and very much needed.
