Went with rob stokes up to see the Broad billed sandpier in Norfolk but there was no sign,which was a shame but we did get a good veiw of a sparrow hawk as it few by us . out on the mud there was a lot of ringed plovers 2 knot dunlin sandling and curlews .
we then decided to cut are losses and head to Minsmere to look for roseate tern which was picked out sitting on the scrape we managed to get good veiws we also enjoyed watching it flying along the scrape with Common terns, little terns and sandwich terns. other bird seen were a lovely bittern avocets with chicks a common sandpiper put in a breif visit also an escaped greater flamingo was nice to see to spoonbills flew over and landed in the scrape
