Interesting call from the plantation... not one either of us had heard before. Wonder if, had we been experienced with these things, we could have ended the flycatcher debate there and then! Our brother had to be given a lift in to college at 10am, so typically we left the point 10mins before the flycatcher was refound and a Little Bunting dropped in!!!!!!!!!!!! Was made even more sickening by the fact we had to put on brave faces and give the thumbs up to all the twitchers coming the other way. We did have several Bonxies over the marsh and a Red-necked Grebe high over the sea. The day ended happily though, as we saw the bird that afternoon. Almost didn't feel worth it with the horrendous weather we had to endure!

Wells Woods today

Had a walk round Wells Woods this afternoon. Loads of Robins around, some Song Thrushes, Redwings, a couple of Redstarts, one Pied Flycatcher and warblers including Lesser Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaffs. A large flock of Siskins were quite mobile in the Dell.

We had a couple of views of a warbler with clean white underparts and green upperparts but never quite got to see the whole bird. I grabbed the attached shots that shows yellowish edges to the flight feathers but again no head. The leg looks pale brown.

Could this be yesterday's 'onelli's (headless Bonelli's)

Looks pretty good to me... which is seriously annoying as Simeon and I were going to go for it after he finished school today if it was still around.

Edit: After a few seconds deliberation, I have decided I may have to go and look for it without him. Where exactly was it?

Help Wanted

I'm on the boat from Morston tomorrow to Blakeney, but want to walk back so I'm not restricted to a time - unless there are a number of return boats during the day?

Does anyone know bus times and where to catch from Cley to Morston?

I can see this going horribly wrong.

Thanks for any help.

Buses are easy, there is a stop opposite the beach road, so you'll see it as you reach the main road. I got drenched standing there on Sunday because cars were spraying up all the standing water, but its probably much better now! The Coasthopper buses are still running half-hourly (about xx.15 and xx.45 from Cley). A single Cley to Wells cost £1.60, so it should be less than that.

Good luck!

Song Thrushes everywhare and a few Redwings and Fieldfare, Snipe, Jack Snipe etc etc Just amazing numbers of birds.
Others today saw Little Bunting, Shore Lark, Grasshopper Warbler , Mealy Redpoll, Black redstart .. So I missed a few birds.

One of my most incredible day’s birding for a long, long time

Starting at Sheringham Cemetery, Siskins were grounded and feeding on the tarmac by the gates. Many Song Thrushes flew out, with a few Redwings.

Gramboro’s Barred Warbler eluded me again, but provided this interesting Redpoll sp, disturbed from the reeds (!) and ending up on the shingle. Anyone for its race, please ?

As I drove in to Walsey Hills, a Yellow-browed Warbler flew from the reeds and across towards the North Foreland. Despite brief searching, in the midst of ferocious midgie attacks, it was not seen again. A flick of a warbler highly reminiscent of one at Wells Woods yesterday was again not repeated.

Friary turned up 2 or 3 Ring Ousels and Brambling.

Then on to the westernmost track at Warham Greens, which was alive with Redstarts and Pied and a Spotted Fly and another Ring Ousel. We then started north, then west, getting a Barred Warbler almost as we started birding at The Hills. The place was heaving with hundreds of Song Thrushes and Robins (easily in 3 figures).

A Red-breasted Flycatcher was in the main glade, with more Bramblings. 2 more RbFlys were at the west end, although I only saw one. Quite a few Redwings, a Mistle Thrush and a Fieldfare, Lapland Buntings, flocks of 20 and 40 Siskins, with a few feeding on the saltmarsh ! ! and a few more Pied Flys.

As we walked back, a Short-eared Owl was Asiomatic of the day., flying up several times.

This is a summary, as I have to gain oblivion.

***DO NOT GO OUT TO EAST HILLS WITHOUT KNOWING HOW TO AVOID THE VARIOUS DANGERS***

Hopefully weather will clear this afternoon to reveal a big fall
Also one over Holme today.

Sounds like a major arrival of common migrants this afternoon, todays highlights list now on NOA website.

grabbed a few hours in the afternoon, just as many birds behind the Point, with many Robins and Song Thrushes, Redwings, 9 Redstarts, Yellow Wags, a field full of Wheatears West of Blakeney, this old bloke told me he'd had a Great Grey Shrike West of Morston but although i think i had the right place it elluded me. Although its great having time free from my job in the middle of the day which enables me to 'drop in' on these falls i'm always aware of the time and always felt i was having to rush back, still a few things to check back on tomorrow and hopefully more to come.

Clearly though a lot birds flying in off the sea mainly touch down on the first peice of available land, the sooner Blakeney Point erodes into the sea the better for me haha ; - )

Sorry mate but the geography of the coastline means it's actually getting longer...so twitchers of the future will either be fitter or have shorter lists

I also had an excellent haul of birds around the Point area (in addition to the Empid....) - a Jack Snipe, ringtail Hen Harrier, Short-eared Owl, Bramblings, Siskins, Redstarts, many Song Thrushes etc - then Grey and Red-necked Phalaropes side by side at Kelling Water Meadows. A memorable day!

From the kissing gate pass the northern end of the boating lake take the southern fork in the path and follow it past the path down the west side of the camp site. The path opens out into a wide area and it was in the birches on the immediate right.

I hope this makes sense, if not why don't we try to create a definitive map of the area.

Awesome Morning!!!!!!

On route to Holme I decided to drive via Ringstead and just before the Ringstead Mill I almost stopped the car in disbelief at the skies - thousands upon thousands of wood pigeons filled the whole sky - everywhere I looked - never seen anything like this before!!!!!!!!!!

Arrived at Holme just before 8am and driving down the Firs Road to the reserves, birds were flitting about all over the place!

Parked the car and excitedly grabbed bins and camera - soooo frustrating to know that I had to leave at 10.15am to be at work for 11.30am. Walked round the back of the Firs and spent ages amongst the pines were the Arctic Warbler was - the place was alive with birds, song thrushes, robins, bramblings, goldcrests and tons of overhead passerines. Two Spotted Flycatchers in one tree!!!!!! Extremely annoyingly I stumbled, walking down a slope on a wet tree root - hurt my hand which didn't care about at all, when I could see my camera wedged lens down into the bl**dy sand!!! fortunately the sand had not sneaked quite up to the filter lens on the inside of the hood so managed to brush most off with a tissue until proper clean up later. Walked round to the observatory where I watched and photographed a Yellow Browed Warbler, Firecrest, Blackcap and Garden Warbler being rung!!! Also Sophie caught a reed warbler which later appeared in the sycamore tree opposite the obs. and caused a massive panic when I first saw it sitting on a branch - I quite simply had no idea what it was - it just sat there in the tree almost motionless and I just didn't see as a reed warbler at all - I shouted to Jed 'Come back quick' as he was going off down to check the nets and no one around me could ID it. Sophie came back from a net round by which time it had flitted out of view and she looked at my pictures on camera and said 'Reed Warbler'!!!!!!! I suppose it was because of it sitting in that tree - not where you normally see a reed warbler sitting! Saw an interested small raptor from the obs. in the mid distance being mobbed by swallows but it disappeared not to be seen again.

The Reed Warbler incident now mean't I was cutting it fine to get back to King's Lynn. It was pure torture having to leave with all these birds about and in some ways I wish I had never left my house! Driving back along the Firs Road resulted in even more bird movement than earlier - it was desperately frustrating that I had to leave. My dodgy car played up massively on the way back and took forever to get to King's Lynn which resulted in me being late for work, but I made the time up later and finished at 8pm tonight. My local garage came and picked the car up from work and then I had to walk all the way home. So no car tomorrow either, so please no one torture me with finding a mega that I can't go and twitch tomorrow after work! (please note, John F. or James M or MG et al!!!)

On route back to Lynn Jo Riley from the media company (who supply the tabloids with photos), who phoned me yesterday about using my 'crowd/twitcher' shots of the Flycatcher in some of the national newspapers, phoned me back to tell me my pictures were in The Daily Telegraph and The Mirror and I would be paid in approx 6 weeks time!!!!!! This has put me on such a high - pity the bird shots were not mine - I am pretty sure they are Julian Balereo's pictures. What makes me really laugh is - I have all this expensive camera gear and lens's and my first ever published picture is of birders taken on my bl**dy Apple iphone!!!!!!!! Can't believe it - and its not even a good photo really - if I had known that record shot which I didn't really think too much about when I snapped it quickly, was going in National Newspapers 2 days later I would have taken a bit more care in taking the picture! Another newspaper has also asked for my pictures today - I'm on a roll now - please Santa can I have a big fat lens for christmas - oh and a man to carry it round for me

Anyway back to reality - got to work for 12pm and I just didn't want to be there - I was on Cloud Nine with all this picture in paper stuff and was just desperate to be back out in the field!

PICTURES OF THIS MORNING'S BIRDS NOW ON BLOG.

Best Wishes Penny
