Black Winged Pratincole Titchwell 5th June

A return to Norfolk allowed more excellent views of the Black Winged Pratincole at Thornham, both in the air and on the ground. Though the views were good, the light and distance meant there was no chance of getting any pictures. A visit to Titchwell on the 5th delivered the goods in the form of stunning flight views from the Parrinder hide, and , eventually a chance to snatch the pictures below as the bird teased its admirers with occasional and very brief moments away from the vegetation thet obscured all but its head !
