Disappointing day

A glorious day weather wise, didn't translate into a good day of birding.
A trip with John H failed to reveal a potential Norfolk tick, so no Caspian Gull at Waterworks road, Norwich. One Carrion Crow harrying a Buzzard near Acle was the only avian interest.
A trip to Fritton woods, so I could look over Chedgrave marshes revealed a large Peregrine (probable female) perched on a fence post and 2 female Marsh  Harriers quartering the fields.
2 Chinese Water Deer were seen also, I failed to see the hoped for RLBuzzard, or any Owls though.
A trip to Ness Point mid afternoon failed to reveal the Iceland, 3 Purple Sandpipers were on the finger with some 20 displaced Turnstone on the walkway due to 5 boys recklessly clambering over the rocks looking for whelks (and deprive Oystercatchers of potential food).
Hamilton Dock revealed a close-in Red- throated Diver swimming away frantically sadly, as I would love to got some shots of it.
