18th September

As the weather was reasonable and my car was booked in for a service I spent a pleasant day with friends in Norfolk. In general it was a little quiet, with not much happening on the sea and little in the way of passerines on the move. There were  a few waders to lookout out for, we connected with one species Wilson’s Phalarope at Cley but missed the 2 Pectoral Sandpipers at Titchwell. Firstly because a Peregrine put the wind up everything and birds headed out on to the salt marsh. The birds to a long-time to get over this, so we decided to pop back to the centre for lunch. In that time the Pecs popped back and even though we only had a quick lunch they had gone by the time we returned. Making our way home we called in at Lynford Arboretum and connected briefly with on of at least 2 Two-barred Crossbills that are in the area.

Anyone in bushy tonight had a treat! Atmospheric low lying mist with literally hundreds upon hundreds of martins passing through. 2 hobby and one sparrowhawk which chased them off and caught a martin. Deers began belling when I headed home, magic!

You would have thought they would be heading for a nearby roost site by one of the reservoirs. Saying that not many res's have marginal plants to roost in.
