1st June

Tawny Pipit present near Waxham Sands caravan site.

Corn Bunting and Yellow Hammer at Chosely Drying Barns

Unfortunately I have had to go back up to Norfolk for family reasons. The only bird that I had wanted to see that was present as I drove up, became more elusive during its stay was a female Citrine Wagtail. The weather then turned from a slightly warmer direction to one from the north-east, this slowed the passage of late migrants down. So in between the various jobs in the garden I managed to get out and see some of Norfolks more special species. Sites visited and the better birds present.
