Linda's son Simon joined us for the day: since he's a keen (and very skilful) wildlife photographer, we decided to take a run around the Broads to see what we could find to point a lens at! First stop was Strumpshaw, but the recently-present Waxwing was nowhere to be seen. Moving on to Acle, we located two very distant Cranes, so we carried on to Ludham Airfield. Absolutely no wild swans, but there was a decent flock of Golden Plover. We continued westward to Ludham: the fields between Cold Harbour and St Benets held just a few Bewick's and Whoopers, but none near enough for photography. It was getting near lunchtime, so we returned home, stopping briefly at Acle, where this time there were eight or more Cranes just a little closer.
