Disappointing seawatch at Sheringham...

...but a few nice bits and pieces at Cley! An early start found Linda and me in the famous shelters by 7.30am: just three other birders present, with nothing to report after an hour's watching. Apart from a few Kittiwakes, terns and lots of Gannets, we failed to emulate yesterday's excellent reported totals - perhaps the strong northerly needed some rain to bring the birds inshore.

A move to Cley was more productive, with adult and juvenile Little Egrets, a couple of Spoonbills and another apparent Yellow-legged Gull. A good passage of House and Sand Martins was taking place and a Wall Brown on the path was good to see. Linda bought a new pair of binoculars at Cley Spy (Opticron) and then we dashed into Norwich to deliver some more books to Jarrolds, City Books and Waterstones. Since there's an obvious demand, it beats me why both the RSPB and the NWT haven't taken a few....

Back home to mow the lawn and enjoy the antics of our resident Hummer!
