Tim joined Ken and myself for another foray into Norfolk, we had been told it would be a seven metre tide which should have covered all the mud and brought all the waders ashore. The tide was definitely high but not quite high enough but still gave us a spectacular show in the various lights as we watched
After a long day yesterday we stayed close to home and started at the Sandon raptor area, we were not disappointed with a kettle of ten common buzzards haging in the wind and a further two on the ground together with a pair of red kites which they had skirmishes with when they took off.
We also had a party of six Jays give us a fly past.
Next stop was Fowlmere which was quite unremarkable except for two brief sightings, firstly a late Hobby and soon after an Adder crossing the path.
