1st February 2009

Back on the bandwagon, and a return to Buckenham for Adam to get Bean Goose. They'd gone. It wasn't a totally snowy washout though, after a brief glimpse of a Peregrine, Adam found a male perched on the ground from the mill whilst scanning, giving good views. Further down the track, a long overdue Reed Bunting flew across the path and into the reeds. On the way back, a couple stopped us and asked if we'd seen the Green-winged Teal. The answer of course was no, so we were grateful to have a look down their 'scope, a good bird to get.

In between snow showers we went round Strumpshaw, which was devoid of most birdlife. A flock of Siskin, three Marsh Harriers, 100+ Teal and huge amounts of Robins was just about it. We got back to Brundall and got the train home.

Year list ticking over at 113 species.
