Could not leave early as had to go into town for something - excuses, excuses!!!
Spent the day with my youngest sister Vivien who I picked up from Hunstanton. Also bumped into father in the high street, gave him a lift home along with some shopping I had got for them and then Vivien and I continued along the coast for a cruise.
Thornham - dipped on the Northern Harrier again - but to be fair, I didn't really get there early enough anyway. Bumped into Irene Boston as I was leaving who had re-found the Iceland Gull, but it had now disappeared towards Holme. It was seriously windy today, so much so that it was difficult to walk at times! 3 Marsh Harriers distantly by Jameson's Wood, Holme.
Choseley Barns - nowt! Not a single bird was seen here!
Burnham Overy Staithe - sat here in the car and had our lunch - few turnstones, redshank, a grey plover and herring gulls.
A single Barnacle Goose amongst Pinkfeet west of Lady Anne's Drive, Holkham.
Cley - walked along the East Bank to dip on both the American Wigeon and the Shorelarks!
Salthouse Beach carpark - sat in the car yards from a huge flock of beautiful Snowbuntings, but the light was so naff, I didn't get a single sharp photograph. It also didn't help the fact that dog owners continuously turned up and flushed the flock several times.
Drove home via Holt, shared a bag of chips on the way back (yes I know I am dieting!) and dropped Vivien at the train station to go back to Ely.
Not one of the most exciting days I have had - but then it was probably more exciting than spending hours in a car and then standing at a rubbish tip all day, looking for a Slaty-backed Gull!!! Seriously though, feel sorry for all the people that went for it - around a thousand did so, so Andy W. told me.
