Well done on getting the Cetti - usually a loud noise and a glimpse of a disappearing bird (if you are lucky!)

I see you have been to Cley as well - possibly the same Marsh Harrier that we saw!

 

The Little Grebe is beautiful.

Thanks @TonyQ - we were there over the 2nd May bank holiday. I think you were there a few weeks before. We saw a lot of similar birds but I think you got some better shots.

 

I wish I had visited the spot were you saw those Fulmars, I haven't seen them and wasn't aware that they breed on the mainland.
