Lakenheath and Beyond

Stone Curlew, Reed Bunting

Comma, Brown Hawker

We're both in England for a brief moment so took the chance to pursue one of our most eagerly anticipated ticks, the Golden Oriole. And so, Lakenheath RSPB was the only place to go. After much calling what we did see, however fleeting, was the male looking for all the world like Bananaman and two recently fledged young.

Other birds included two Bitterns (one booming, one flying), three Bearded Tits, Common Cranes and, a short drive away to an undisclosed site, one Stone Curlew (with 6 more reported but apparently not on show).
