Sheringham Bird Observatory

North-east 3-4 Sunny Cool.
Took a wander down here this morning, oblivious to the fact that everyone else (presumably) was on British Summer Time and I was still in GMT (thought I felt a bit cold!) The ringing nets were up in the wood but by all accounts things were pretty quiet, not surprisingly. Very little noted moving at sea, just Wigeon (3E) and a flock of Turnstone (13E). On the fields at least 4 Stonechat still present and a second summer Mediterranean Gull was patrolling before eventually parking up.
Skylarks in Spring Barley
Mediterranean Gull (2nd Summer, left hand bird, honest!)
...told ya!
Back home and very little of note in the continuing cool easterly, with a Common Buzzard over Rounce's Wood and old Mother Moorhen was sat tightly on the pond.
