Stonechat at last!!!

Finally after hundreds of attempts Andy & I finally connected with the pair of extremely elusive Stonechats on the Golf course this afternoon but within seconds of picking them up they soon vanished and despite searching not seen again! Are these the worlds most elusive Stonechats ever?!?  The fresh marshes continue to hold a plethora of bird life and of particular note Golden Plover and Dunlin!

A walk through the Pines turned up two new Fungi year ticks - first off was the Earthstar Geastrum triplex (Collared Earthstar) and secondly and more surprisingly the MEGA rare Rabbit sh*t Nail Fungus Poronia erici!!!

We finished off the day (after a out of patch visit to Titchwell 'shroom twitching) in the village.  Walking down Bakers Carr we booted 2 maybe 3 Woodcock and remarkable considering between us we could count this years sighting of Pied Wagtail on one hand between us 30+ went to roost nearby!!!  Where on earth did they come from?!?
