The Brecks

Lynford Aboretum - Three fly over Hawfinch, displaying Siskin and two Egyptian Geese in a tree were the highlights.

Olley's farm, Thetford - Despite ideal conditions and fantastic weather a couple of hours waiting failed to reveal a Goshawk. Compensation in the form of Woodlark, Stonechat and three Crossbill were enjoyed.

Lakenheath RSPB - A superb site with the over-wintering Great Grey Shrike in the carpark, a fine pair of Garganey on the lake, booming Bittern, Bearded Tit plenty of Marsh Harrier and a brief view of one of two Common Crane.
