Bee-eater! I've wanted to see one of these for ages, and despite an initial setback when it flew off from Glandford ford, Cathy, Margaret & I managed to get excellent views as the bird relocated to wires near the sewage works. Afterwards we headed to Cley for some food, only to meet Bill Oddie in the carpark! After a brief chat we left him in peace and headed up to the visitors centre for lunch. In a quick scan of Pats Pool from the centre I saw a large flock of Dunlin, a 1st-summer Little Gull and some Avocet chicks.
