Kite passage (1st April)

April 1st walk along coast from Holkham to Bunham Dunes (and back) in search of early migrants.
I was hoping to catch some of the Red Kite passage that now seems to be a regular feature along the Norfolk coast at this time of year. It was great to find two birds, one over Holkham Marsh and a more distant bird over Burnham Overy.
At one point there were Buzzards, Sparrowhawk, M Harrier,Kestrel and Red Kite all in the air at the same time!
No other migrants other than 15 Chiffs and a Blackcap. A singing Cettis was seen as well as heard (they are such a pain to see!)
