Breydon bash: RLBs, Rockits and Pintails!

With just a morning at our disposal, Brian, Norman and I walked out from ASDA on the hunt for Short-eared Owls. Seven miles later and we remained owl-less! However, we did see two Rough-legged Buzzards and several Rock Pipits, both of which were a little distant, but very welcome.

The tideline was a mass of waders: Golden and Grey Plover,  Curlews, Redshank, Dunlin and a solitary Purple Sandpiper. A very welcome addition to the tally was a flock of around a dozen Pintail, as was a similarly-sized group of Bearded Tits in the reedbeds.
