I didn't think the Icterine Warbler would be seen again today, (see NOA website) they rarely show again after being rung I recall, when father caught them at HBO!
I won't admit to what time I actually crawled out of bed today, my body ached dreadfully. I had full intentions of going birding this afternoon, especially with Red-backed Shrike turning up at Cley and Icterine Warbler at Holme, there had to be something else out there, but the time just seemed to run away. I had to go food shopping, no choice and needed to stock up for the weekend. I actually cooked myself a proper dinner this afternoon, can't remember the last time I did, as birding requires sandwiches for all day. There is no one at home to cook my tea when I get back late! Edited pictures again and caught up with my ever increasing amount of emails of requests, information etc – I need a PA!
A big day and alot more walking tomorrow is on the cards I feel.
Have a fabulous birding weekend everyone!
