Rough-legged Buzzard at Wells

For my first trip out since being confined to the house with 'man flu', Brian drove Norman and me up through the frosty lanes to Wells for another crack at the frequently elusive juvenile Rough-legged Buzzard. As we arrived there was a single birder on site: a very pleasant guy from Hertfordshire. We scanned the distant hedgerow until our new acquaintance announced he'd found the RLB, perched on a bush. We enjoyed terrific telescope views, before moving to the car park. From here we eventually had a much closer look at this delightful bird and finally managed some reasonable photos.

After coffee at Cley, we carried on to Felbrigg, where a five mile hike produced just a Stonechat, a well-marked Common Buzzard and a somewhat scaupy-looking Tufty!
