Cromer and Sherringham.

Started on the patch but it was still very quiet. A Whimbrel was my first of the year and so was a Common Whitethroat both at the OSW.
The rest of the patch was quiet James had a Willow Warbler at the NSW but when I got there they had already passed through. 3 Wheatear still in the NSW compound.

Come late afternoon we were really bored so took a trip up to North Norfolk heading for Cley stopping at Salthouse where I had a distant probable Blue Headed Wagtail but it didn't show outside the long grass.
We moved onto Cley beach carpark where I immediately spotted this cracking Blue headed Wagtail.

Then another year tick was 2 very nice Little Ringed Plover.

Whilst watching the Plovers it was great to hear flocks of Sandwich Terns heading towards the point.
It was amazing to see 30-40 Wheatears all along the coast from Salthouse to Cley.

Cley windmill looked great as ever. Digiscoped from the beach carpark.

We then headed to Sherringham for a cracking evening on the sea front watching the sun go down as we ate our fish n chips.

Then we finished the day with a Beer and an ice cream on Cromer pier, just love it awesome evening.

Oh how good it is to just be an hours drive from our favourite locations.
Back home the moon was stunning.
