Horsey Gap was our first stop to see the unbelievably accommodating 1st winter male Desert Wheatear; at one point it was perched on the foot of one of the photographers!
Next stop was Gt Yarmouth to witness the hovering Rough-legged Buzzard then onto Stubbs Mill to see Cranes, Marsh & Hen harriers and Barn Owls coming in to Roost.

Distant views of the Long-tailed Skua
The week started well with a visit to Nene Washes to seek out a Purple Heron. Although no decent photographs were obtained we ( Will Bowell and I) did manage to be within about 15 ft of the juvenile before it flew from one of the dyke.
The chance to see a juvenile Long-tailed Skua was taken with about another 50 people at Newton in Nottinghamshire. Reasonably good views were obtained as this flighty bird moved from one ploughed field to the next.
The week was rounded off with a visit to Tichwell to see, from afar , a juvenile Long billed Doiwitcher.

Part two of my Father's day treat, following on from the trip around Bempton Cliffs, was a 3 1/2 hour pelagic trip from Bridlington to an area off Flamborough Head. A fair swell made the day even more memorable. Great, Pomarine, Artic and Long-tailed Skua were seen along with Blue Fulmar, Manx, Sooty and Balearic Shearwaters. Numerous flocks of Pink-footed geese were traveling south, one of which contained a Snow goose, perhaps the one seen later in the day at Holkam marshes. The following were also seen in a species total of 30----Puffin, Red throated diver, Little Turn, Little Gull, Gannet, Black Tern, Shag and Kittiwake. A superb day which included 3 additions to the life list.
