The last month...

I've had a particularly busy few weeks at uni but I've still managed to fit in a bit of birding as well. Here are a few of the best bits from the last month or so...

First-winter Caspian Gull at Sheringham. A day in the Holkham area produced 8 Spoonbills, 137 Russian White-fronted Geese, 3 Great Egrets and 50+ Snow Buntings among others.
Lesser Yellowlegs at Lingham Lake, Nosterfield. A redhead Smew was also on the lake.
Cattle Egret in the roost at Bolton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire. 2 Great Egrets were also in the roost and a drake Ring-necked Duck was at nearby Ellerton Lake.
Lesser Spotted Woodpecker (unfortunately I can't disclose any more details)

Great Crested Grebes
