still unperturbed I decided to go and look for my own birds (The Punks would be proud of me) and I headed to the not so migrant hot spot of Friar's Hill, Blakeney. A place that always looks awesome but then again you never hear much about it.
A female Redstart got the birding off to a great start but I realised after 30 mins of searching that that would be the highlight. A brown streaky jobby in a scrubby thicket had me thinking off PG Tips or my bogey bird Lance...
One last chance before the sun did one and I nipped along the coast to the site of Norfolk's last mega...the Rufous-tailed Robin at Warham Greens. Unfortunately it had gone but I did see another Eastern vagrant in the shape of a very quiet and skulking Yellow-browed Warbler.
aren't they just great and to make life even harder the little bugger never called once.
Not a bird I know but one couldn't resist and what a cracker...Small Copper in September!
