So we got back from Norfolk on sunday and it was nice to be back on patch, especially as the wind had now turned easterly and I was now seeing more in my first 2 hours on the patch than I had done all week in Norfolk. Id started at Radar lodge rd and picked up a Redwing feeding with 2 song Thrush very quickly. It already felt good. At the end of the track I did a short seawatch, in a few minuets I watched an Arctic Skua attaching an Adult Med Gull. 50 Teal were sat on the water, lots of Gannet movement and a handful of Common Scoter
A walk back along the cliffs produced a nice fly over Snow Bunting then sat on the fence were a Whinchat and Wheatear.

.I reached the Dis railtrack not seeing much more on the way but Rob had found 2 Yellow Browed Warblers... Good lad, managed to lock onto 1 of them at least. I Carried on around to the NSW pond where finally the Willow Emerald Damselfly were now out.

I headed home for lunch but then ventured out again afterwards and finally heard 2 Yellow browed warblers together in the Dis railtrack. Whilst stood there the rarest bird of the day was a fly over Ring necked Parakeet, a patch and Suffolk tick. That's was it for the day.

I went out again after work tonight but it was very quiet until this Pied Flycatcher popped up in the Churchyard.

I did take a few pics of the Blood Moon at 345 this morning.

The winds are getting stronger and stronger through the week so lets hope theres plenty more birds to come.
