Stone curlew

27 April 2015
Peter Kennerley reported to me a most unusual observation this morning: a stone curlew that flew up from the concrete track south of the Martello and seemed to land on the shingle bank somewhere. This was clearly a bird of passage, but to where? They do nest in Breckland on sandy heaths there and I've sometimes wondered whether they might do so on Hollesley Heath one day ... I am green with envy to have missed this spectacular bird, having left SS just yesterday!
