Pretty much the story of my life.

Actually, Ranworth Broad is part of the Bure Marshes National Nature Reserve, and is closed to river traffic to aid in its recovery as fenland.

That makes it a welcoming habitat to birdies like the two below. Despite a passing resemblance to Bill Oddie, any claims I might make to being a twitcher reflect age and natural clumsiness, not ornithological expertise: nevertheless, I’m fairly sure this is a (not rare, but rather elegant) Great Crested Grebe. Taken with a digital compact at some distance, so not great pictures:
