13th June

I didn’t get much time for any serious birding while in Norfolk at the weekend. I did however manage to get out for a couple of hours out each morning, first to Cley and then along to coast at Eccles. I then made do with brief visits to Hickling Broads NNT Reserve during the afternoons. On the Saturday I found an adult female Red-footed Falcon and on the Sunday a 1st summer male turned up there, so we detoured there as we set off for home and just before the rain arrived.


Some of my snaps follow
