Winterton with Martin

Another bash at the North Pool for Common Hawker proved fruitless: if I hadn't met Mick Saunt in the dunes who watched a female ovipositing last year, I'd wonder if this species is mythical in Norfolk!

All was not lost, though: Martin and I enjoyed a great walk with some bird highlights including Whinchat, Red-backed Shrike, Pied Flycatcher and Wheatear.

On the sea we noticed a distant 'brown job': seems to have Shearwater features.... Any help (though not abuse!) most welcome...

A move to Rush Hills at Hickling failed to add Great White (or any other!) Egret to the daylist, but there were plenty of Grey Herons, a terrific wasp (ichneumon?) and lots of hunting Migrant Hawkers.
