Week just gone.
Update after all below I went out and did another sea watch this time from Gunton cliffs. It started amazingly with a ver close Black Tern, almost missed it under the scope it was so close. After this though just Whimbrel x3, Grey Plover x7 9 Common Scoter, Gannets and Kittiwakes, a distant wader looked like a redshank without the wing panels, think it was a spotted Redshank. That was it really.
August 10th Early start with a quick run with the dogs a few Swift moved through Corton back on patch it was very quiet just 11 Teal and a few Gannet.
Sat In garden watching Swifts, Swallows and 3 fighting Migrant Hawkers.
