NORFOLK N CHANCE

Friday was big twitch day,kindly invited by Martin Collins to see western sandpiper and lesser white fronted goose in faraway Norfolk,joined by Les Collins and Malcom Mcvail we set off at 6am and got to Buckenham Marshes at about 9.30.By midday we had found egyptian geese,canada geese,barnacle geese,white fronted geese,pink footed geese,bean geese and greylag geese,guess what the lesser w.f goose remained hidden until we had left the scene,well it was friday the 13th.Never mind the western sandpiper had been seen at Cley that morning,guess what it went to ground and stayed hidden all afternoon or was taken by a merlin as we arrived? who knows.

As we drove away from Cley a barn owl was hunting in a field beside the road,a good way to end a day of dipping,serves you right for twitching do I hear?
