Honey Monsters!

Yesterdays feeling of hard done-by bitterness disolved instantly as I opened the back door this morning to go walk the dog and was confronted by a 1st year HONEY BUZZARD as it was being pursued by a Rook going over the garden! A long, long awaited addition to the garden list, this one was thoroughly enjoyed! What I didn't realise was that this was the first of SEVEN birds seen from Aylmerton this morning! The track afforded great veiws of birds moving along the ridge, drifting inland and one rising up out of Felbrigg Park with a Common Buzzard. One of those birding experiences that will linger in the memory for along time, a respectable supporting cast included another 2 Common Buzzard, 2 Hobby and another Osprey at about 1100 that moved quickly inland. Great Stuff!!
