RSPB Manchester members group have just had a trip round roughly the same locations.

We stayed in Cley so had good views of Barn Owl at dawn and dusk. Also Cettis and Gropper singing and a few Bearded Tits by the sluice. Only saw 1 Spoonbill there but plenty of Marsh Harriers. 1 Nightjar churring up on Salthouse Heath.

Dartford Warbler at Dunwich Heath and adult Med Gulls at Minsmere.

1 male Golden Oriole, loads of Hobbies and a Barn Owl at Lakenheath - no Cranes cry.gif

Saw Jimmy at Titchwell and we also missed the Black Kite bleh.gif

We had the Red Kite on the way down on the A14 near Molesworth.
