Snowy Owl

Never thought I see a Snowy Owl in Norfolk. Must be the first easily twitchable one since 1991.
At Thornham point on 10th March. Too distant for photos but did see a snow bunting on the walk back( approx 1 hour) to Tichwell.
Photo below . What one looks like if you are lucky enough to get near, this one taken in Canada in 2009

Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler

We decided to go see this three Star Mega even though Birdquides was not operating correctly and therefore could not confirm whether it had survived the night ( what a time for a website breakdown!)

We were greeted by a good sunny day but with a very strong biting wind . Not ideal conditions to see a bird which under good weather spends most of its time remaining concealed low down in vegetation.

As expected, only flight views were had----one in nearly three hours!

The images below are library pictures which illustrate its key ID features.

This bird is trivially called PG Tips--based on its initials and one of its key features of having white tips to its tail feathers!

                                                 Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler, Burnham Overy Staithe.
                                                 A very rare Autumn vagrant which breeds in Mongolia

                      A surprise awaiting some of the Twitchers retuning from viewing PG Tips!!
