Buzzards and scones for lunch!

We meet up with my family this morning in West Norfolk, a Medieval village called Castle Acre.Plenty of ruins left behind by the Normans to check out and some nice Tea rooms too.We had some cracking scones and cream for lunch and decided to walk down past the priory towards the River Nar.
 On the way we had laughing Green Woodpeckers,Long Tailed Tit flocks and good number of the usual Finches .But the stars of the day had to be the soaring Common Buzzards over the river.We counted 5 in total before loosing em again among the gorgeous blue sky and then my brother Hayden picked em up again like small dots in the sky (hes got great eyes!).

Wheres that Grey Wagtail gone?
A nice Grey Wagtail spotted by dad & a hunting Sparrowhawk over the pathway on the walk back ended a nice stroll. There was time for one more Tea but i passed up on a second helpings of cream scones(watching the figure!)
A cracking Spring day and lovely company. All it needs now is some returning migrants...........
Happy Birding,
