Didn't quite realise what time it got light, well at least not today!
4 sightings of Barn Owl,morning N of Little Thornage and evening to the South (same bird? Probably not), then before and after at Walsey Hill. A Woodcock was feeding in full view in the headlights at Cley, then another seen flying along the road. Two Egyptian Geese flew into fields, as a Dunnock scuttled across the road. A small party of Teal (must have seen before) flew from the Serpentine. After work a couple of Pied Wagtails played amongst the duck at Salthouse, after a Reed Bunting flew from a set aside field. Finally 3 Marsh Harrier were seen pre-roost at Cley, with a single Little Egret gliding past in the darkening snowfall.
2 drake and a redhead Smew are at Barton Broad and a mobile group of 3 Redhead Smew (different to the Saddlebow birds) are now at Titchwell, having spent some time at Burnham Deepdale. The Red Kite and 2 Water Pipits are also present.
Some 'interesting' reading passed on by LGRE. It is rather 'amusing' (in the strictest sense of the word), although probably more damaging to the 'author' than either hobby represented!
