I was really surprised by the size of fish this youngster was given by it's parent, far too big I thought - how wrong could I be, it went down its neck in less than five seconds. I apologise for the quality, the birds were some distance away but you can get some idea of the size of the fish in the second picture.

I have lost track of the number of times I have visited Weeting and seen a distant dot, so what a pleasant surprise it was to see the 'thick knees' up close. The bird with the rings on its legs then caught a worm and flew off to feed the distant chick. I then moved on to Lakenheath fen and had a flypast of four cuckoos - something one also rarely sees!
