Egret gathering at Strumpshaw Fen

Having photographed the occultation and completed my monthly survey at Hemblington Church, I carried on to Strumpshaw to meet Norman and Brian. Very little on offer from Fen Hide, apart from a dapper little Sparrowhawk and a few Migrant Hawkers, so (once Brian had arrived) we moved on to Tower Hide. As expected, with water levels being nice and low for once, there were lots of Herons - 20+ in fact. Joining in the feast were a Great Egret and a Little Egret, both most welcome! A Kingfisher flew through a couple of times before I went home for breakfast: Linda and I then made a flying visit into Norwich to pick up a guitar from Cooke's and some bee equipment.
