Owls and a Shag - but no Swallow...

....although as Linda & I drove down from Egmere on the B1105, a Swallow sp. flew parallel with the car for a few seconds: as is usually the case, there was nowhere to park and a steady stream of traffic.

A walk and drive around Holkham was unproductive apart from scores of Pink-feet and a few Whitefronts, so we moved on to Brancaster Staithe (just a couple of Little Egrets) and Choseley. A RLB was available at a mile range, so we didn't bother to take the necessary walk. And so to Titchwell...

Lots of Marsh Harriers coming in to roost, but no Hens: a Barn Owl was nice, though (the first of a few we encountered) On the way home we paused at Wells Quay, bumping into Rob Holmes - great excuse for a mardle! The long-staying Shag was visible distantly in the gloaming, so I grabbed a few grainy images. Believe it or not, despite a birding excursion to West Wales in June, this bird was a year tick!
