With news of a showy Icterine Warbler at Burnham Overy, Norfolk over the weekend we decided to wait & have a drive down on the Monday without the weekend crowds! A fantastic bird & yet another lifer for Donna taking her upto 226 species overall & 222 for the year!! We also had Grayling & Wall Butterflies (Both lifers for her) & a Garden Tiger.........

A Ruff showing well at Draycote water was a good opportunity for Donna to get up close with these fantastic waders...........
