Caspian dip!

Well: you can't get them all! Linda and I took an enjoyable stroll from Potter Heigham church to the hide on Weaver's Way that overlooks Rush Hills, in the hope of catching up with the recently-present Caspian Tern. The first photo below is to prove that I still have a 'scope and still use it when necessary!

The water levels seemed quite high (although the woodland path was dry) and all the birds were on the far side. Lots of Lapwing, Black-tailed Godwit, Ruff and Avocets, as well as ten Dunlin and a couple of each of Green Sandpiper and Little Stint. Despite a two hour watch, the Tern failed to materialise: good to chat with Stoke birder Nick who seems to have seen many of the same birds as Linda and I back in our twitching days. Lunch at Latham's and then home!
