Spectacled the Dog's Testicles

Another visit to Norfolk, this time with Dave and Paul. A much later start as I had to give my better half a lift to work. This meant we did not arrive at Burnham Overy until after 2pm. After some improvised parking we made our way towards Gun Hill. Here we joined about 20 other birders. We waited for a few minutes and the Spectacled Warbler flew into the sueda right in front of us, it was carrying nest material and disappeared deep in the bush. It flew out after a short while and perched up and sang on the sueda before flying off. It did this several times while we were there. We enjoyed the Spectacled Warbler for a couple of hours and then headed off to Holme Dunes where a Montague's Harrier had been reported. On our walk back to the car 2 Spoonbill and 2 Little Tern were nice to see. On route news reached us that the Monties had been seen at Titchwell. As we had passed Titchwell we decided to keep going to Holme. We stayed at Holme for a couple of hours but the Monties did not  return. A few Marsh Harriers, a Lesser Whitethroat collecting food and a Yellow Wagtail with the horses provided some interest. Then back home in time to pick the good lady up from work.
