Norfolk – Cley – 28th May 2011

Watch out for: Summer visitors; Waders, Warblers & Terns

After a week of sunshine we set off at just pass 6 O’Clock in the pouring rain and slightly doubting our logic.

Thankfully when we arrived on the coast the rain had stop and during our visit we were not disappointed with the birding.  The star attractions were, 2 Little Gulls, over flying Spoonbills and Little Ringed Plover.  It was also good so see numerous Black-tailed Godwits in summer plumage, a number of Ringed Plovers, Martin’s, Sedge Warbler & Whitethroat.

Plus off shore Sandwich & Common Tern.

East Anglia Year Count: 141
Life bird count: 403. Year bird count: 208. Month bird count: 117.
