Speed Birding

On Tuesday 10th April, leaving Martham Library at 12.50pm, I had a tweet stating there was a Hoopoe at Waxham sands Holiday camp, with just a 1 hour lunch break, ten minutes later I parked at Horsey gap, 15 minutes later having walked over to the Pipe Dump accompanied by Perry F and joining Ricky F and John H we watched the excellent Hoopoe shuffled right and behind a tuft of grass, minutes later it walked left again initially with just the top of the head and crest viewable it walked right again feeding and after 10 minutes I had to leave. 2 Swallows also flew south singularly. In the evening 6-7pm, I visited Leathes Ham, 3 pairs of Pintail seen plus a female Wigeon, by the right side of the boardwalk, eventually the Wood Duck swam out.
