North Norfolk Coast 'bits 'n pieces' & a Cattle Egret......
A seawatch from Winterton mid-morning (5th) with Jason Nichols saw several Red-throated Divers on the sea, along with Gannets offshore. Approximately 20 Mediterranean Gulls moved north, as did a Razorbill and a Guillemot was on the sea.
Pink-footed Geese were at Salthouse in relatively good early numbers, whilst 6 Little Grebes were on the pond, near Walsey Hills.
At least 4 Little Stints were seen from the middle hides at Cley, where there were also Ringed Plover, Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwit Little Egret and 8 Great Black-backed Gulls.
A look for the Cattle Egret, reported with cattle on the flooded fields at Stiffkey, at first was to no avail, but on the return walk the Cattle Egret was seen in flight and then seen to land at the far edge of the fields. A short while after the egret flew off again towards Stiffkey Fen. 2 Male Bullfinches, Sparrowhawk, Hobby and Marsh Harrier were also seen here, along with several Red Admirals visiting the Ivy flowers.
