We made an early visit to see some very rare (for this country) European bee eaters at Trimingham, near Cromer in Norfolk. The forecast was good but it was very dismal when we arrived at 7:30 a.m.
I managed to get some shots in poor light and had to make do with that because by 9:00 a.m rain set in. So much for modern weather forecasting!
You can read all about these bee eaters on the RSPB web page and even see some decent photos of them.

More amazing birds again today in Norfolk, this time at Cley Marshes.
The rarest, and a first for me, was a spotted crake. The most spectacular were the spoonbills but I loved seeing all the different waders.
Slideshow only today as I clearly need to do some more work on my ID of a few of these.
Lovely to be back in Norfolk (and seeing some birds again!).
A few photos from RSPB Titchwell Marsh where we stopped near the end of our long hot journey from Bristol.

The sun brought out the damselflies, dragonflies and butterflies at Duchess Pond in Stoke Park this morning. A few birds too. Too hot to hang around though.
