Sheringham Bird Observatory, Friday afternoon

The Wheatear count continued here, along with something a bit special thrown in for good measure!
Wheatear- 21
Whinchat - 5
Willow Warbler - 1
Dotterel - 3. Found on coastguards field, including a near full plumaged female, a moulting female and a dull, presumed male. Also seen in flight when a Merlin flew over and flushed them off over the cliff, although they apparently returned soon afterwards.
