Next day a return to Holkham, where we saw a large flock of Greater White Fronted Geese and another large flock of Pink Footed Geese. Also a single Barnacle Goose, 8 Red Legged Partridge and a Great White Egret. We then went to Brancaster, where we saw a superb Hume`s Leaf Warbler . Onto another area near Stanhoe , where we saw a Tundra Bean Goose and 1000 plus Pink Footed Geese.
Blakeney Marshes , where we saw 18 Twite , a bird I was keen to see. At Warham Greens , we saw 2 more Barn Owl and a Red Kite . After missing out yesterday . we connected with a Juvenile Pallid Harrier. A fantastic sight .We finished the day off back at Holkham, with 5 Grey Partridge and a Woodcock..
On our last day, we woke to a Winter Wonderland with an outside temperature of -6.5 !!! We then headed for home with our first stop at Eldernell, Cambridgeshire, where we saw a Tawny Owl sat in a tree, and a very elusive Long Eared Owl. Our last stop of the trip, was at Eye Brook Reservoir in Leicestershire, where we saw 4 male and 1 female Smew, 2 Great White Egret and 2 Little Grebe.
It was a really good trip with good company . We must do it again .
