   Thanks to the Queen had chance to have a couple more days in Norfolk.
   Much brighter today, but still a fairly strong wind. Try Cley Marshes.
   Not a lot happening here either. Highlights though were a male Whinchat, fairly close to one of the hides, 2 Spoonbills (asleep all the time we were there), and lots of hirundines and Swifts.

   The Marsh Harriers, seemed to be showing well from the East end of the reserve, so went there. As usual they all disappeared. Typical!!! After leaving the reserve we had a drive around, but didnt see too much. Went to the Three Swallows pub in Cley village, but nothing really caught the eye, but as we drove out of the village a Barn Owl was quartering the field opposite. It was a reall pale bird, i managed about 5 shots, as it turned and dived into the grass. It came up with a Vole or something similar and flew off over the church. Typical, again!!!
