Crossbills in the afternoon

Popped to Hollesley after work today to see if I could see the CROSSBILLS, it was very windy and after the rain, there were loads of puddles making them difficult to find, but I did.

Long Day at Lakenheath highlighted by the Red-Footed Falcon

Eddie and I got up early and travelled to Lakenheath to find the RED-FOOTED FALCON, it finally after 5 1/2 hours it turned up, it was a very tricking bird to photograph flying fast in a very strong wind so not great photographs, but a stunning bird!!


Just as we were leaving Eddie spotted this CUCKOO and I managed to get this shot
Sunday whilst walking at Shingle Street with my wife, spotted this CORN BUNTING perched in the rape
WHEATEAR at East Lane (same walk)
