Doing the normal drive to work this morning coming out of Wayford as normal checking I was still doing 50mph (dam the average speed cameras), I looked up to see a small Heron type bird originally I thought oh wow a Bittern but as I drove closer it didn't look quite right. Had my bins to hand and straight away I could see that it was actually a oh wow Purple Heron. It flew south over A149 near sewage works between Stalham and Wayford and appeared to land about a mile away probably near the River Ant.
Welcome to my birding blog. I am Gary and I really enjoy birding and wildlife watching. I love going to see new UK birds and really like it when they turn up in Norfolk. I now aim to find a few more birds and hopefully on my two new patches.
More details, photos and reports can be found on my website.
My patches are in North Walsham and Gimingham so if you have any news please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
