Great Grey Shrike Heacham 18 October

Gret Grey Shrike Heacham 19 October. Still coming to sit on the wires and bushes around the Chalets.

A quiet week-end for late october but still producing a late Curlew Sandpiper at Titchwell as well as 2 Spoonbills,Purple Sand and a flock of 7 Snow Buntings instead of the 1 in the previuos post. Massive numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing appeared along the coast on Saturday, and the Sea at Holme offered a single Pom skua with the first Goldeneye of the Season. Holme Marsh added a brief flight view of Bittern as well as Buzzard Marsh Harrer Kestrel and Sparrowhawk.
