Norfolk 21st-23rd May 2011

A whistle stop tour of Norfolk and neighbouring counties for some of the
special breeding birds of the area resulted in mixed success.
I failed to see Montagu's Harrier and didn't meet anyone who had, also failed
with Honey Buzzard too. On a brighter note, self-found Golden Oriole and Wood Sand'
made up for the omissions.

A splendid Red-Necked Phalarope at Burton Norton and churring Nightjars on
Salthouse were magic. Other highlights included Little Stint, Garganey and Black Tern.

These Coot images below show how a coupling of Damselflies met their ending
