hi all,
"Rare birds have been spotted flying above Norfolk's coastline and countryside in record numbers as Britain's warming climate brings them flocking from abroad."

Every time this comes up in the news,  I wonder:

How do the birds know that it's warm here? Playful Wink

Fell overboard? Let's just wait here, the tide will bring him back in.

Even with this news, the "beloved" RSPB can pour on some doom .....got to keep an eye on extracting more pennies from the GBP so they can suck up even more marshes!!

They probably missed the info about the Broads NOT being flooded for 50 years.
Bird brained you see?

Talking of rare birds, anyone mooring at Reedham for the night should not fail to hear the elusive Grass Hopper Warbler and it's fascinating and beautiful high noted nocternal song emanting from Norton Marshes. The song, which gives this species its name, is a monotonous mechanical insect-like reeling, often given at dusk.
