13th October 2010

Having briefly considered the shameful prospect of visiting Waxham to see the latest Bluetail a stern talking to from Parish Listing Purist Sean led to me going up the North Dunes again this morning. There was also Sean's news that he had met a birder on Tuesday evening who had seen a Red-breasted Flycatcher "somewhere on the dunes". Needless to say it could not be found this morning which wasn't surprising as nearly all the migrants from the last two or three days had moved on. However, there was some consolation in the form of a flyover Woodlark, a Jack Snipe and three Cranes landed about half a mile inland.

Finally, there was a female Blackcap in the garden.
