Saturday 25th February 2012

   Decisions, decisions, do i go for the Paddyfield Warbler in Sussex or Norfolk and Suffolk. Dull overcast morning and decided to go to Suffolk. Started at Lower Hollesley Common for Crossbills. Found the puddle and not long after the Crossbills. Didnt get quite as close as i would like to, but got some photos. There were plenty of Siskins too.

   Then to Minsmere for the rest of the day. There were 17 Bewicks Swans on the road in. Half a dozen Smew, at least 2 Bitterns and another half a dozen Marsh Harriers, not a bad day.
