Getting Shorty..

A Short-toed Treecreeper was found at around midday on Wednesday 6th April at Bradwell, Essex. It proved too much of a temptation for the wandering birders, and thanks to Josh's mum very kindly giving the duo a lift, they had ticked the bird off within 5 hours of it being found. A superb British tick, and a real rarity outside Kent.

Thrilled to have seen such a fabulous bird, we headed to the 'Norfolk pad' in high spirits.

Over the next few days we saw a few decent bits 'n' bobs, not many photos due to strong wind however. Among the highlights were House Martin, Cetti's Warblers, plenty of Swallows, Wheatears and Long-tailed Ducks and Velvet Scoters off Titchwell.
