|Rufous-tailed Robin - not in Norfolk|
At Warham Greens we saw 250 Pink-footed Geese flying E, 2 Marsh Harriers & 3 Lapland Buntings, plus a lot of old birding friends I’d not seen in years. We eventually moved on to Titchwell where we saw a Bittern which flew across the main track, 640 Pink-footed Geese flew E, 900 Golden Plover including a white headed individual, 51 Ruff, 4 brilliant Bearded Tits and a Brambling. Final stop was Holme where 500+ Pink-footed Geeses were feeding in a field and we along with 100 others were rewarded with good views of a Red-flanked Bluetail. I saw the bluetail in the scope several times but when it showed the best I was too engrossed in watching it to take any photos while at other times it was a bit of a scrum. It was my first bluetail in Britain for 19 years and made the trip worthwhile despite news of an Isabelline Wheatear in Sussex.
