Saved by the Queens Birthday

Well, the winds dropped and finally some birds showed their faces. Tuesday was an additional day off for me, so I spent the afternoon trespassing at the Nelson Head cattle drinking pool bushes. Redstart, 2+ Spotted Flys, 6 Northern Wheatears, Garden Warbler and 5+ Willow Warblers wasn't a bad haul I suppose (especially when compared to the previous few days). A bunch of Iccy's and Red-backed Shrikes have been turning up along the east coast, there was a Citrine Wag at Titchwell and Mark Golley found a Red-throated Pipit on Blakeney Point, but nothing so exciting for me unfortunately.
