By which I mean me: I haven't been to Swineham for ages what with important business to attend to, being the perfect husband/father, and a tiny bit of twitching. The long weekend is providing a bit more breathing space than usual though so I headed down this morning. It was pretty quiet, predictably, but a few decent birds and photo ticks for the year were on offer.
