North Norfolk coast. 14.3.2015.

A cold easterly F5/6 wind would have answered the autumn dreams of many!!   Blustery , but with good visibility the conditions lasted throughout the day.

A good look at the NWT Cley reserve produced little of real interest so I moved further along the coast and did some seawatching.  Despite the seeming favourable wind very little was on the move. Several parties of Gannet moved east together with a Red throated Diver, but overall things were quiet. I moved on to Kelling Heath and had an enjoyable wander around in what was now quite warm conditions in sheltered spots. A couple of Woodlark were seen, and a period of song heard, before an "intruder" caused all birds to move off. Otherwise the area appeared almost devoid of birds.

The remainder of the day was spent at various locations around Cley simply indulging in routine birding. No surprises emerged but it had been a satisfying day nonetheless.
