Saturday 23rd June

Guided birdwatching today started with great views of 6 Stone Curlew. Also Lapwing, Oystercatcher, Linnet in the same field. We moved on to Lakenheath, where despite very windy conditions we managed a nice mixture of birds & insects. A male Golden Oriole was still singing albeit briefly, Marsh harriers were much in evidence coming to & fro from their nesting areas. We had a couple of views of Bearded Tit, a Hobby put in short appearance & we had good views of Whitethroat, Reed Warbler & Reed Bunting. On the wing was also 4 Spotted Chaser, Broad-bodied Chaser, Azure Damselfly, Blue-tailed Damselfly, Common Blue & Variable Damselfly.


In the afternoon we tracked down Grey wagtail, Spotted Flycatcher, Marsh Tit & Treecreeper. Moving on to th Brecks heathland we then had lovely views of a singing Wood Lark, plus another brief Hobby.


Returning home we had a cup of tea & watched two freshly emerged Southern Hawker's sitting out on vegetation around our garden pond.Plus a Tree Sparrow at the garden feeders


After an evening meal, I took the group out for the evening session, which proved very successful with no less than 6 Little Owl, including recently fledged young sitting on a wall, 2 Barn owl, 3 Nightjar & 3 Tawny Owl, the latter sitting in full view of the car head lights.
