Birds are ticking along nicely.

Friday was a Waxwing day, one had been found in Lowestoft and i was able to have a quick look on my way home from work. I then returned just before it got dark with my Scope and Camera. Lovely bird. 

Saturday 13th it was patch day and actually it was extremely good. Corton Woods was best with 2 Tree Creeper a Rare Nuthatch and upto 5 Firecrest. 2 Bullfinch, a few Siskin and plenty of Goldcrest. Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Chiffchaff best of the rest here. A Rat, Squirrel and a Med gull gave me some digiscoping practice although in terrible light.

Over at Asda Carpark beside Lake Loathing in the afternoon I managed distant views of Great Northern Diver and a Shag. A Female Peregrine was just visible on the side of the Silo.  

Sunday i had a cracking day out with a few friends starting at Waxham for brief views of a Humes Yellow Browed Warbler, Chiffchaff, Barn Owl, 6 Crane in distant fields and the best a Barnacle Goose with the 200 or so Pinkfooted Geese.

Onto Happisburgh where we couldn't find any Shorelark but a Fox dashed across the field onto the beach and back. A Stonechat appeared from the beach and a Short seawatch had us ticking Red Throated Divers, Gannet, Wigeon and Pintail.

Then onto Cromer where it was hard work finding the 1st winter Iceland Gull but whilst searching we again looked on the sea to find many Red Throated divers and a handful of Guillemots.  Danny picked up the Iceland Gull as it flew in off and we went in search of the bird within the Golf coarse. We refound it by the main road and it did show quite well for a short time.

Lastly we finished at Sherringham for a mobile but very nice Black Redstart, oh and a great fish n chip supper. 

Great Day with Great Company.
