We failed with the crossbills but didnt really mind as I did get the tick I wanted- Stripe Winged Grasshopper- This now means that I have successfully seen all orthoptera species in Norfolk this year!
This cracking male was singing North of the car park and I think the other is a female which was near the paddocks.
