Century made

Today I finally saw a Pochard at Strumpshaw- about time too- this puts me nicely on 100 species for the patchbirding competition!
I added Curlew (and Grey Seal) yesterday too, which were welcome additions.

My father and I had a spare couple of hours this afternoon so decided to go to Thetford to see the Black Bellied Dipper- a fantastic little bird, showing very well, shame the light wasn't a little brighter for photography but by first (uk400) tick since the Savi's last year. I'll add the obligatory photos a little later.
Amazing how it managed to find the location- probably the only suitable habitat for miles around, clever things these birds. 

EDIT- turns out not to be split by uk400 after all!
