Haddiscoe Haul!

Just for a change (and in a once-again futile odyssey for Short-eared Owl!) Brian, Norman and I went south-east to St Olaves, from where we took a six-mile round trip between the Waveney and the New Cut.

Despite the lack of owl action, we did manage some good birds: a female Hen Harrier, lots of Marsh Harriers (including green tag DS) a Buzzard, a family group of five Stonechats and a flock of Bearded Tits.

Having an hour left until Brian's curfew, we drove out to Lowestoft Ness, where the first birds I saw were nine Purple Sandpipers These gorgeous calidrids provided typically excellent photo-ops for all of us before we headed back westwards through the murk!
