Dersingham Bog and Holme Reserves

I ventured out for a little while this morning and started off at Dersingham Bog to look for Crossbills, but didn't find any. It was so hot there I didn't walk too far to be honest.

Parked at Holme NOA carpark and walked straight across the dunes to sit and sea watch at high tide. Very few birds were seen: 5 Dunlin going west, a single fem. Eider sat on the sea, a few Sandwich Terns flying past and also some Swifts. The highlight was a Tortoiseshell butterfly in off the sea! Lots of holidaymakers, children and dogs charging around. The temperature sitting here was perfect, as there was a nice breeze. It would have been idyllic if all the people and dogs weren't here! The Firs Road is much improved to what it was, since it was repaired and its a much smoother ride now!

Visted my parents for a while before returning to King's Lynn to do a 6 hour shift. Watched 3 Pied Wagtails flitting about in the puddles after a thunderstorm at work in my break.
