I woke one morning and thought "fuck work" looked at my car and camera and headed out. It was bloody early the sun wasn't due to rise for at least another 3 hours, not sure why but I headed for Norfolk.
I made the carpark at Cley Marshes as the sun tried to burn through some low cloud/mist. I had to close the car window to muffle the calls of a nearby Skylark and distant waders as I called in sick. Job done I switched my phone off. I got to the hide nearest to the carpark and stood outside. I could hear then see Bearded Tits on the far side of the channel. But it was a distant Marsh Harrier that presented a half decent photo chance
Another togger told me I just missed a Spoonbill close to the hide. It did return but distantly and stayed with the other delights.
