Bits & Bobs

In a day trying to dodge the showers, sunny intervals provided small windows of birding, but birds were in short supply today.
At Kessingland Sewage Works, several - 6 Goldfinch were seen plus around 50 Pied Wagtail in total, a Grey Wagtail flew off and on the Sewage beds amongst the Pied wagtails were 5 Reed Buntings, 4 males and 1 female. They were later seen perched in the hedge.
Finally a male Yellowhammer flew over to the sewage beds.
A female Sparrowhawk flying over the fields disturbed 30 Pied wagtails which flew up and away.
At Burnt Hill Lane were 7 Egyptian Geese including the very pale bird too.
Several other haunts were checked with no birds seen.
In the garden several- 4 Redwing flew past over Fallowfields and a Long-tailed Tit and 3 House Sparrows visited the fatballs, whilst jenny saw a butterfly which from her description fits a probable Small Tortoiseshell flying around, it disappeared when I went outside to check.
