BTO and the Brecks

Woodlark, near Santon Downham

On Saturday I attended the BTO workshop on sound recording, which was a good opportunity to share ideas and experiences and in particular to pick people’s brains about ‘nocmig’ before I try it in Shetland. Thanks to all involved with the organisation of this event.

Before breakfast this morning I spent some time with Woodlarks – the views were quite pleasing but vocalisations were few. Another highlight of the early morning was provided by large (and vocal) flocks of Bramblings.

After breakfast we moved on to Weeting, where we were rewarded with good views of the Rough-legged Buzzard (close enough to see the pale yellow iris) and Stone-curlews. The rest of our day was spent at Lakenheath Fen, where highlights included Garganey, Bittern, Crane and Kingfisher.
