American Wigeon

 A trip to Marlingford early in the day for the American Wigeon before the rain set in was a good plan with weather forecasting rain for the day.
I was greeted by smiling face in Matt on arrival and Steve who i meet at Halvergate during the week so i was in good company!
American Wigeon (244)

 The bird was out in show among a small flock of Wigeon.It stuck out with its white forehead and was showing fairly close too.While watching this Steve gave  a shout out  of " Grey Wagtail" and as we turned ,it dropped in by the mill showing really well- very nice! At this point Jim turned up and as he got on the American Wigeon he saw a Kingfisher fly across, unfortunately i missed it though.
 Me and Jim drove back up out of Marlingford and viewed across the fields near Bawburgh,We saw a nice Little Egret ,another small flock of Wigeon & Jim picked up a nice Little Owl perched. A very good hours birding.
 Happy Birding,
