Today it was a slow start but finally made it to Holt where I saw my first lifer in what feels like ages. 5-6 PARROT CROSSBILLS, and crackers they were too. We watched them for a good 2 hours in the tops but eventually a couple of cracking males came a bit lower and gave me the opportunity for a couple of record shots.
A RED KITE and 2 MARSH TITS were a nice addition to the morning.


After our fill of the Crossbills we moved to Wells village for a walk and some Frenchies fish n chips yummy, in the harbour were a couple of SHAGS and a really nice ring tailed HEN HARRIER .
Finally the BLACK BRANT at Cley showed incredibly well.
We then made the slow journey home. Great day in Norfolk as ever.
