A few Cranes have been around, which are always very nice to see, as are the Short-eared Owls that have been seen on and off at Buckenham.

50 Bewick's Swans flew over the office on Thursday, which was a nice surprise on a bright spring like day, their soft calls alerting me to their presence, the same flock was seen later on at Breydon Water.
I had a day off on Friday and decided to do a bit of gardening instead of heading out birding. The day started off cloudy and it looked as if there was going to be no chance of seing the eclipse, however the cloud thinned for a matter of seconds and I was able to take the photo below, I guess it was lucky, but it was the second time this week that clouds thwarted a good show (the Aurora being the other dissapointment).
I'm not quite sure what was going on with my camera, what should have been very good shots are not nearly as sharp as I had hoped considering the good light conditions, need more practice with the FZ200, I'm sure it is a very good camera I just need to master the settings!
