Photo'ing out of the box

Thanks to HVWG for the boxing day updates:

Green winged teal still present on Watton NR with the red head smew, 2 black tailed godwit and approx 50 white fronted geese. Another new species for the moment was a female garganey courtesy of John.

James has some more shots of the green winged teal on his blog here

At least 1 short eared owl was on the wing at Hempholme, and on d res the roost returned 11,000 common and 6,000 black headed gulls with 670 great black backed and 275 herring - but no white wingers - though the two little egrets made their daily commute back from work at Hempholme home to Watton at dusk.

And lastly Tony escaped the Christmas fever and got a great present as a result - check out the Flickr stream for the pics.
