I rose at 6am this morning and was 'on site' by 7am but there was no sign of it. I gave it about an hour and fifteen minutes before declaring. An Osprey was present and at one stage flew over Rockland Broad across the Yare and over towards Buckenham carrying a large fish. So that was some consolation. It was also good to bump into Kit Day, who I rate as one of the finest bird photographers in the UK.
Footnote: now being reported from Strumpshaw Fen at 12.31pm!
Bigger footnote: I went back around 5pm and had reasonable views of the bird along the path close to the pump house - my third Wryneck of the week. Not the best photos ever, but a smashing bird!
