With pretty much the day to myself, and with a prevailing westerly wind, I toyed with the idea of taking a trip up to Lincolnshire to see the Steppe Grey Shrike, but ultimately couldn't be arsed to drive up there, which would have meant spending most of the day in the car! The geese moved off early this morning as the ploughs got on the field, it was good while it lasted.
Took a walk along the cliffs at West Runton, it was considerably breezier down here. Nothing unexpected seen, but pleasent enough though, birds of note being the 2 resident adult Mediterranean Gulls, a brace of mobile Lapland Buntings, commoner waders and a pair of Stonechat.

A quick look in at Felbrigg Lake produced single Tufted and Pochard, a Dabchick, 2 Coot and at least one pair of Mandarin.
