Back from Norfolk.

Just back from a week in North Norfolk and an early morning walk to theSpit hide felt decidedly Autumnal...a big drop in temperature overnight and a brisk north easterly! A Chiffchaff and a Wheatear were present along the pathway and my first Stonechat for some while hopping from post to post.
When we returned late afternoon yesterday there were a good 50 House Martins flying low over the beach heading East.

 Norfolk was interesting but we dipped out on the Arctic Warbler (present up to the day we arrived in Holme and an elusive  Barred Warbler). However a visit to Cley produced a few close ups of Bearded Tits...always a spectacular bird to see!
