Male Garganey, Titchwell Marsh Red Kite, Titchwell Marsh Dead pleased with myself for picking out my second Norfolk Red Kite of the week at Titchwell this afternoon. I did this shortly after my arrival on site as the bird flew west over the trees surrounding the Visitor Centre. I then had a pleasant 40 minutes or so photographing the pair of Garganey on the Fresh Marsh. On leaving I heard at first in amused disbelief and then as I realised it wasn't a late April Fool that White Tailed Eagle had been accompanying the Red Kite as it had been drifting East. And that I had probably missed it by a matter of minutes.
