Afternoon at Hickling Broad

My elder brother Rob came up from Kent for a few day's birding: he was actually the person who introduced me to the hobby when we were young, so it's always a delight to spend time with him in the field.

We waited for the morning rain to pass before driving to Hickling for a somewhat gusty walk around the reserve. Against my expectations we managed to see - and photograph - some interesting stuff and enjoyed chatting with each other and with a group of birders on holiday from Kent.

Birds I didn't manage to photograph included Great Spotted Woodie, Swallow, House Martin and Kingfisher - really close at the Bittern Hide, but behind some reed stems!
