A nice patch tick - May 4th
Leaving work I headed to thorpeness ever hopefull the white stork might drift south from minsmere. The skies stayed stork free but a message of a white-tailed eagle heading north over Leiston had me racing to the north end which gives good views towards Sizewell and beyond. I soon picked up a large bird being mobbed with my bins and views through the scope confirmed a patch, suffolk and british tick in the form of a white-tailed eagle, superb!! Strange thing was after watching it drift further north I was walking back across the common when I noted a House Sparrow...a patch tick for this part as they usually only occur around the houses to the south.
