13 April A Brambling in the hand - but no kentish plover

Brambling ringed at Holme. A good bird to see in the hand and a consolation prize for spending several hours on the beach, but with no sign of the Kentish plover reported earlier in the day. Not photographed, but putting on a spectacular display were 3 RED KITES at Snettisham - at 1 stage all circling in the same telecsope view.
