Breckland birding

Been awhile folks, but after a seamless house move (back to Norwich, Anglia Square massive and Wroxham as a local patch?) I am back, and a half term visit to the forest seemed in order.
East Wretham Heath has bags of potential but no birds. Well, not the birds I wanted! Had a good look at some Marsh Tits, recent BB article in mind and all. Loads of corvids leaving their morning roost.
Santon Downham held a handful of Brambling, lovely to look at after what I am sure has been a lean winter. Pretty sure I heard a Lesser Spot, ticked off both the commoner species.
Lynford was on fire, Crossbill in the carpark and Hawfinch in the paddock, 10 and 15 respectively. A white Pheasant was just weird.
Went onto you know where for a Goshawk, no sign this time but picked up Yellowhammer, Sparrowhawk and the calls of Siskin and Crossbill. The walk back yielded 2 white deer (theme continuing) amongst some more regular coloured Roe plus a porno mag, lovely stuff.
