Red-footed Falcon at Hickling

Since Linda and I had things to do in Potter Heigham, we diverted to Hickling Reserve beforehand, walking the short distance out to the far end of Brendan's Marsh. Here we joined a small gallery who'd been watching the female Red-foot until a few minutes earlier: they confirmed that the bird we'd seen from the watch point at the west end of the new scrape was indeed 'the' bird and that the second falcon we'd watched flying into the same hedge was a Hobby. After a few minutes, the RFF appeared once more, perched in a dead tree: distant, but unmistakable, particularly through Mick Saunt's 'scope! Cheers!
Other birds included three booming Bitterns, lots of Whitethroats and Reed Buntings, as well as Buzzards and Marsh Harriers.
