It was again a weekend more about home improvements rather than birding. I did manage to get out for 3 hours early on Saturday morning. Mind you I had overslept by at least an hour, I had wanted to be out by 5.30am and not 6.30am. This caused a change of plan so I decided that instead of Cley I would go to Winterton, which turned out to be the better choice.
Wryneck: one was hiding in the middle of a Sallow and was a bugger to see.
Ring Ouzel: there were 4 birds, unfortunately they were a bit flighty so I kept my distance.
Wheatear: at least 12 birds were present.
Swallow: birds were moving north in small groups.
Redstart: one was feeding along a lane by the coast.
Common Crane: although I didn’t see any birds I heard them in several places that I visited.
