26 April 2013

A flabbergasting number of Wheatears have made landfall today all along the east Suffolk and Norfolk coast.  In an hour this evening in the North Dunes I counted over 100, between the totem pole bushes and the top of the Warren.  Most were sitting absolutely still, dotting the landscape wherever you looked.  They flew strongly on approach though, so I don't think they are overly exhausted.  Two Curlews also flew south.
