29 March 2010

2 members TP & TH ventured not only out of parish but out of county, being unable to resist the lure of Lesser Kestrel. On arrival at Westleton we were greeted by several GY bird club members with the all too familiar greeting 'you should have been here 5 minutes ago', however after enduring rain, cold wind and mist blowing in from the sea, the skies cleared (well, just enough) to give reasonable though distant perched and flight views.
On the way home we failed to see the Pallid Swift at Kessingland, but were successful with the two Alpine Swifts at Lowestoft. One can only hope they find enough food to survive the poor weather that is forecast.
