2 days and 3 Norfolk Birds

17th May 2010 - A after work detour to Ranworth Broad and I was lucky enough to see a spring Osprey. A bird I normally struggle with until the Autumn when they seem to hang around a bit more.

16th May 2010 - Take a look at my site for the sightings and pics of today including a Greylag up a tree on my site click here.

Back to the Orient

15th May 2010 James looked at me and his puppy dog eyes filled me with sadness and almost guilt that he hadn't seen the Oriental Pratincole. So I agreed to drive him to Boston to have another look. Claire tagged along as she wanted to see it also, Cath also joined us and Adam somehow snuck in the car when I wasn't looking.
Any how the drive to Boston was delayed when news of a Great White Egret showing well from the Buxton hide at Welney had me making a diversion. We arrived to the sound of Corn Buntings in the car park, the assisant assured us the Great White 'was' showing well (was being the literal meaning). We stop to look at two male Garganey and then move on towards the Buxton hide. No sign of the Great White Egret.
We then set off to Framton Marsh, here we met Jim, saw a Temmink's Stint and sure enough after a lengthy wait the Oriental Pratincole reappered.

A Great Way to Start the Blog

A trip to Boston - Frampton Marshes to be exact. Had me watching a bird that I was only 1 mile from back in 1993 but never went to see it. Since I have been birding I have always regreted not seeing the Gimingham Oriental Pratincole but all regrets are now passed. Below are a few photos of the bird. Seen yesterday.

Lets not forget to look at the website also My Website
