23rd May: Another Day

Starting at Burnham Norton produced two first summer Little Gulls
Whist at Titchwell, news of an adult Iceland Gull on the beach came through. Soon on sight it was immediately apparent that the bird was not an adult and probably not even an Iceland Gull. An enjoyable few hours was spent trying to suss it out as it moved down toward Brancaster, but I could never get away from the thought it was a leucistic Herring Gull.

Showy Robins at Titchwell, where else
Rare sights: Red-crested (7+ seen) (Titchwell) and Common Pochard female with chicks
Whilst looking at the gull, 5 Spoonbills were seen at great distance, having been seen over Holme
Newly emerged Four-spotted Chaser, with caste
Ovipositing Azure and Large Red Damselfly. Teneral Blue-tailed Damselfly
Wall in tandem. Green-veined White.
'White-headed' Blackbird, Fakenham
