1st winter bird cane into Gull roost on Freshmarsh at 1530hrs.
The roost here is getting better by the day and the birds are clearly viewable well before the fuscus hour.
Note damaged face.
Dark streaks around eye and on breast sides indicate 1st winter. 2nd winter birds show a cleaner white head and breast.

Western Cattle Egret
Parked up to check white dots about the cattle and found a second Cattle Egret.
If they haven't bred in Norfolk in 2017 surely they'll be added to the breeding birds list in 2018...
