Spotted Flycatcher


An early start today for the Alder/Willow Flycatcher (Most probably Alder) in Norfolk at 1 of the hardest sites to get to Blakeney Point (a 4mile hike over soft shingle) having yomped all the way up with my camera gear it soon became obvious the bird had departed overnight!! migrants were dropping in like Brambling,Redwing,Wheatears,3 Ring Ouzel,10+ Common Redstarts & Spotted Flycatcher but hardly compensation when most of these can be found on my local patch!! A slow (very slow) walk back composed myself & headed to Salthouse for the Barred Warbler (good views but no pics)

I tried that walk a couple of summer's ago and got no further than a 200 metres on that damn shingle.What an energy sapper!!! so god knows how you made it with all your gear.
