Caspian Tern at Hickling

An exercise in frustration! Through the bins (and other people's telescopes!) this mega-tern was really enjoyable in the afternoon sunshine at Rush Hills Scrape, Hickling. However, heat haze and distance made photography virtually impossible.. Nice to meet - and chat - with local birder Dave, as well as Barry Jarvis and several other Norfolk 'legends'.

Great to see, though: as were the half-dozen Spoonbills, Curlew and Green Sandpipers and four Little Gulls.

Earlier, a quick visit to the Fen produced more Garganey pictures, while, at home, a delightful Tiger Moth flew over the garden, where a second Chiffchaff and various butterflies took advantage of gaps in the cloud.
