Stanley (seen in red), who's currently over Spain, is lagging behind Vigilamus (green). But the lead bird, who'd been near Bordeaux, has now backtracked.

This is the scene in Shotesham, just south of Norwich, this afternoon.

It's an undated charter from King William Rufus (William II, the third son of William the Conqueror).

A new BBC docusoap following eccentric Norfolk farmer Desmond MacCarthy has caught the attention of TV reviewers.Copyright: BBC
Writing in The Guardian, Sam Wollaston likens Wiveton Hall to an eerie manor house on the edge of the marshes that he stayed in as a child... and wonders whether he'll subject his own children to "the horrors" of his own childhood. He remarks on Desmond's "very special eyebrows".
Matt Baylis, of the Daily Express, describes Desmond as "not so much normal for Norfolk as normal in terms of 10,000 years of global human economic activity".

Police say the theft of money from a disabled man in Norwich was a "sickening crime".
It happened just before 21:00 on Monday when the victim, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, was waiting for a bus on Castle Meadow.
He was approached by a man described as white and tall with brown hair and a grey hat who asked him for money and then stole his wallet when he refused. Police are appealing for help to catch the thief.
Last night's BBC2 docusoap Normal for Norfolk, featuring aristrocratic farmer Desmond MacCarthy, looks set to become the talking point of the county.

The medical director of IC24, Norfolk's out-of-hours and 111 service provider, says the amount of money allocated for each patient for care is "less than the price of a pizza".Copyright: BBC
Dr Mark Reynolds told the county council health scrutiny meeting looking into criticisms of the company's provision that it received about £7.50 per person per year to provide care. Asked if the service was "safe and sustainable", Dr Reynolds said it was, but added that "the pendulum had swung too far" in cost-cutting in the NHS nationally. He said eight years ago, the allocation for out-of-hours funding was nearer £12 to £14 per person.
