On a high after the success at the patch this morning, I headed to the coast genuinely believing my luck was in. If you call a Wheatear lucky, then it was. Always nice to see of course, but I had rather hoped for me. It was at the Decca site, Happisburgh. It arrived and perched nicely for around half a minute, then off it flew. Seems a lot of birds are probably doing just that at the moment. Plenty of Swallows around, but not much else. And to think I checked so much good habo! Will the wind drop? Will Norwich get promoted tonight? Does anyone care?
In other news, the death of Osama Bin Laden was totally overshadowed by 2 Whimbrel and a Greenshank at Surlingham Church Marsh (see previous post, reader/s. Adding the s perhaps optimistic there).
