Seen any Norfolks there?

I believe Norfolk Hawkers are now breeding at Paxton Pits - we had one stray into Bedfordshire this year. Have you spotted any?

Yes

But I think they're over and done with for this year.
They were pretty elusive; I went looking for them four times, saw them twice, and only got one rather poor photograph. Oh well, there's always next year!
