Chance Encounter

A complete chance encounter whilst driving to Dereham on Monday to have my camera fixed at Norfolk Camera.
I'd stopped by the roadside to take a call and immediately saw two birds moving in an area of game strip, only for one to settle down as likely to be at the nest.  A quick fumble with the digiscope and V1 bagged me a distant record shot at a location I'd probably never find again if I tried! 
Schedule 1 breeding birds aren't things I try and find but in this case, the birds found me!
