18 Apr 14 - Waxham

The strong northerly wind was a bit of a problem today. Although bright sunshine for much of the day, it was still very cold and difficult to see any migrants in the bushes. I walked from Horsey Gap to just beyond the pipe dump and did still manage a decent horde of birds though.The best was two male Ring Ouzels that flew over me as they made their way north along the dunes. The campsite had three male Northern Wheatears on it plus a really good count of 77 Linnets. Also, my first Common Whitethroat of the spring was having a good sing just north of the pipe dump. Back at the car, a couple of Whimbrel and a Hooded x Carrion Crow hybrid fed in the fields along the access road.

My first Common Whitethroat of the spring. Waxham, Norfolk.
