Sometimes, as dedicated patchers, you have to treat yourselves to a day out, don't you? So Kim, Norman, Mike and I spent a very convivial (and some might say productive) Tuesday in the Brecks.
First stop was Lynford Arboretum, which, though failing to provide acceptable views of Hawfinch, gave us Two-barred & Common Crossbill, Siskin, Nuthatch and a possible Willow Tit. (I shared the Two-barred with Barry Jarvis - the others had mooched off for lunch!)
The decision to return home via Santon Downham was a good one:- a short walk along the river added Kingfisher, Brambling, a pair & a half of Mandarins and most of the US Air Force!
