Breydon Water, Norfolk 15/7/14

I left Gatwick at midnight after finishing my 4-sector day (Barcelona and Geneva), picked up Ian and Harry and we made our way to NE Norfolk in the hope of connecting with the Great Knot at Breydon. We arrived just as it was getting light, but it wasn't until 5.30am when the bird was spotted feeding with some Redshank.

It was always distant when feeding, but on two occasions it gave very good flight views as it headed to either end of the large expanse of water. A very good looking bird, and well worth a night without sleep.

Totals for the morning:

GREAT KNOT - 1 adult
Spotted Redshank - 2
Greenshank - 3

An Otter was also seen early on swimming down channel.
