Saturday 26th April

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the first Houndstongue in flower, though one person did claim, with some photographic evidence, to have seen an Alpine Accentor, the first for the patch and only the third for Norfolk. We didn't mind missing that of course, and thoroughly enjoyed a Common Sandpiper on the beach, a Reed Warbler in the reeds, a Swift overhead and a steady passage of Yellow Wagtails and small numbers of Tree Pipits instead. I found Tamarsik, Adderstongue, Cleavers and Hairy Tare in flower for the first time this year and found more Feathered Bright moths, this time in Home Marsh. St. Mark's Flies were plentiful in sheltered places. A fine Green Longhorn Moth was along the Peddars Way.
