Ton up

Had to pop into the reserve to pick up my bins (doh) yesterday afternoon so decided to spend a couple of hours spotting. There is not a great deal about especially on the sea. I managed to not see any of the long tailed ducks but did manage peregrine, rt diver and common scoter taking the yearlist over 100.
The morning was spent watching the birds in the garden as it was chucking it down. A fruitful couple of hours produced a nice lesser redpoll on the feeders taking the garden list to 29.
After a late night I had an early start at Snettisham for a goose walk. Thankfully the heavy rain had cleared by a strong westerly wind didn't help things. The geese were not great, probably only 5000, but the was a Ross's goose with them and about 35 snow bunts on the beach. Breakfast at the Old Bank was a monster as usual!
