Saturday we started at Sherringham which held a wintering Purple Sandpiper then found a Black Redstart on the Roofs by the promenade. Moved onto the flooded fields South of Stiffkey which held 2 Cattle Egret no where to stop to get decent views so only seen from the car. At Wells large flocks of Brent Geese.
Back to Cley where i scoped the Grey Phalarope from the VC which was being harassed by Crows on Simmonds Scrape. Cley Beach held 30+ mobile Snow Buntings, lots of Golden Plover, Pintail and Ruff. Great Northern Diver on the sea.
Between Cley and Salthouse the Black Brant was still with 50 Dark Bellied Brents.
A quick check of the 1000 Pink-footed geese heralded nowt. Back for a cracking walk around Kelling heath even though we saw few birds. Days ares short so early back to the van.
Sunday started again at Cley for a brilliant sea-watch, Another Great Norther Diver, year tick Little Auk, a distant brief Petrel almost sure it was Leach's a group of 5 Bonxie. Plenty of ducks, Waders and Gannets. A Snow bunting flew past just as i was leaving. The Black Brant was still at Salthouse and another quick check of the pinks heralded again nothing new. The rain was now setting in so headed home.
