A Birding week
Sedge Warbler At Minsmere
Avocet at Minsmere
Barnacle Geese at Minsmere
Greylag Geese at Minsmere
Purple Heron at Minsmere
The week started well with a visit to Tichwell to see Little Gull, little Tern and ,eventually, Temmink's Stint. Next location was Lakenheath where after four visits in three years we obtained superb views of two Golden Orioles along with a tremendous number of displaying Hobbies,around twenty in number, however we did dip on the Cranes which were keeping a low profile due to the high winds. An early morning visit to Over Fen on the 20th May also resulted in disappoinment as the short staying Semi-palmated Sandpiper had flown overnight. My disappointment was short lived since a visit to Minsmere was successful in witnessing two Purple Herons on the ground and in flight; also my first Turtle Dove of the year
