A very Good Friday

A lovely looking morning and not as cold either (6C). After some hesitation, we found the un-named track down to Kessingland sewage works. Unsure as to the legality of driving down the unmade track, we checked with some returning birders, parked, walked 200 yards past the sewage works and joined about 30 others scattered about admiring the aerial display of a long staying Pallid Swift. Only our second UK bird.
After firing off some hopeful shots of the actively hunting bird, we returned to view several White Wagtails and a single Grey Wagtail feeding on the filter beds. Blackcap and Chiffchaffs sang in the hedgerow, lovely.

'Record' shots

No news of the Lesser Kestrel this morning, we drove to Dunwich cliffs scanning all Kestrels seen - including the promising one seen whist viewing the display flight and song of a Dartford Warbler.
A most enjoyable morning's birding.
