During the week more and more information about lots of ticks for me in Wells and Holkham. Finally mid morning on Saturday i (and the Mrs) made the decision to go. We headed up late Saturday enjoying the evening in Wells Harbour.
The following morning i headed into the woods. Even at 7.30am the car park was filling with birders.
Now i can honestly say i like Wells Woods but today i really didn't. Yes i got great views of the Red-flanked Blue Tail but come on it was like an episode of The Walking Dead, you know when they do a panoramic shot of the fields and woods and its awash with Zombies aimlessly walking about.
Zombies popping up from anywhere, behind bushes, brambles and trees but this time holding Swarovski.

I didn't last long before i started to get fed up; with little news coming from Holkham i decided to head there for the Isabeline Shrike. Initially not showing but eventually i refound it.
Then onto the 2nd Blue Tail of the day. Two Life ticks, not as many as i had hoped but worth trip.
