Dad took an un-expected day from work and offered to take me out. It wasn't a hard choice as there was hardly anything about! So Norfolk it was... where a Little Bittern had been seen on and off for most days. It took a while to show but even then to a selected few (including myself while eating a cracking bacon 'n' egg butty - not bad ay) Occasionally would it pop its head up above the reeds and its bright bill was particuarly noticable. The bird eventually took flight into a reedy ditch as wasnt seen again.
Midday scanning over Hunstanton for the Alpine Swift drew blanks with dreadful weather drawing closer and closer. Heading home turned out to be a wise chose!!
