Back to the Birds!

After seeing the 5 Waxwings at Bowthorpe, I consoled myself with some time watching the Red Kite. It flew right over my head (my anticipation wasn't too great!) and then hunted the 'valley' for c 20 min. Two Buzzard wre also present.
On the eastern edge of my Sparham patch 6 Buzzard circled together in the thermal. A quiet afternoon round the pools was interrupted by a Cetti's Warbler singing (unusual at Sparham) 10 Goosander were present, with 3 drake and 4 female on the main pool. A Tawny Owl 'keek'ed with amazingly another 'woo'ing at Swanton Morley. There were two pairs of Oystercatcher at Sparham, with one calling in flight over Swanton Morley. A calling Brambling and a flock of c 50 Fieldfare suggested some movement at Swanton Morley. An afternoon Barn Owl showed beautifully, later joining a second in a crevace in a tree.
