Sea Watching all day!

Cley Coastguards 7.35am

Whilst waiting for the Albatross to sail through!!!!!

With several Cley regulars:

3 Arctic Skuas
Several Pintail flew west but can't remember how many
3 Manx Shearwaters
1 pale phase Arctic Skua
3 dark phase Arctic Skuas
1 Grey Plover
Guillemot
Great Crested Grebe

On route to North Hide - two Whimbrel in the Eye Field. From North Hide, usual waders plus 7 Curlew Sandpipers and 1 Little Stint.

Cup of tea in Cley Visitor Centre and a cheese scone. Had a nice chat with Sue.

Walsey Hills NOA
1 Chiffchaff, Comma, several Red Admirals, Speckled Woods, a pair of Migrant Hawkers in tandem.

Sheringham - Lunch
Lunch at Roy Boys Cafe again at Sheringham - see yesterday's post. As we walked past an ironmongers I spotted an excellent steel, fold-up step for short people to seawatch!!! This will be very useful at Coastguards and trying it out for size, I suddenly became taller than Mr Myers!!! Mind you, he'll still see more birds than me!

Sheringham 2.35pm to 7.35pm
48 Manx Shearwaters (Eddie saw 75 - he would!)
2 Sooty Shearwaters
2 Red-throated Diver
1 Kestrel
Tons of Gannets (didn't count them)
2 Auk sp.
15 Arctic Skuas
15 Turnstones
1 Shag - juv.

Eddie sent his list to RBA and obviously saw more than more than me and also because I left the shelter a couple of times to attempt to open RBA on my iphone, but didn't have enough bars on the phone to open the site up. I just hoped that we wern't missing anything major!
