Home via Suffolk and East Tilbury.

On leaving North Norfolk Sunday morning some of the group split, me, jono and monkey carry on birding, the other lads head home. We head home via Horsey for Common Crane (having seen the sandhill again on Thursday on the way up so non twitcher Mo can add to his list!) We find two together in a field just south of Bogrove farm on the seaward side of the road.

News on the pager that the juvenile Woodchat Shrike is still showing in lowestoft, half an hour later we are treated to stunning views of this bird in the links road car-park and even attracts a male Brambling which wasn't so happy of its presents!

Then it was on too Minsmere to filthy twitch a Gloosy Ibis (or ebis if your shaunboy) and a heard of Red deer just outside the reserve including a monster of a stag.

And finally onto East Tilbury, Essex where the half a dozen or so birders are already looking for the long staying Semi P which puts in a brief appearance before flying west with two Dunlin, and with a supporting cast of 3+ Little Stint and a Curlew Sandpiper the weekends trip took a welcome boost.
