Wryneck, East Bank – Cley NWT, 5th September 2014

Encouraged by recent reports from Blakeney Point, I decided to spend yesterday morning doing the walk. Early Wheatear activity around The Marrams gave reason to be optimistic but by the time I’d reached Halfway House I was beginning to worry. There was a small group of Whinchat, including a very pale individual, at The Hood and four Redstart, including a male, at Long Hills. On the Point itself there were single Pied & Spotted Flycatchers, Reed, Garden and Willow Warblers more Whinchat and a couple of Chiffchaff  – though, sadly, nothing more exciting. Fortunately for me the Wryneck on East Bank, Cley NWT was still present in the afternoon.

Several Whinchat were at The Hood, including this rather pale looking adult

Meanwhile – back at Cley, a rather obliging Wryneck on the path at East Bank.
