North Norfolk Weekend - February! Raptors!

Despite a weekend of very grey cloud, managed to get some great birds on the list.  After missing the Northern Harrier at Titchwell on the Saturday by about five minutes, managed to locate it on Sunday morning at Thornham Harbour.  It flew east along the dunes then towards the small group watching, before heading out across the marsh again.  Within minutes the highlight of the weekend was reported round the corner - a Long-eared Owl roosting in a hedge on Thornham Green.  It soon attracted quite a crowd, half of which were curious passers-by, as it was right next to the road. The light was awful, although some decent shots were obtained:




Other weekend highlights - Rough-Legged Buzzard at Holkham, Twite & Snow Buntings at Titchwell and a Spoonbill at Cley.
