Two Lifers in one week !!!

It's been quite a week, drove up to Norfolk on Monday for the Citril Finch at Holkham Pines, dipped on that, whilst we were there a Moltoni's Warbler turned up at Blakeney Point, no boats were available, so we walk 4 1/2 miles up the beach to Blakeney Point, when we got there it was sulking in a privet hedge and only made very brief appearances, got a few record shots and walked the 4 1/2 miles back.

And then on Friday a Red Spotted Bluethroat turned up at Minsmere, so we dashed over and got it, together with a large crowd of others, managed to get some half decent photo's

Also my first Spotted Flycatcher of 2015 at Holkham Pines
