First stop was Holkham, to look for a Rough-legged Buzzard, which sadly didn't show. So onto Cley beach car park, and then the Eye pool, its not a big pool, but there was no sign of the Grey Phalarope.......it was there though, it was hidden in the small amount of sedges growing along the north edge, you wouldn't believe anything could hide in there......it did come out though!
In the actual Eye field, there was a flock of Golden Plover and another of Dark-bellied Brent Geese, a few Skylarks and a late(ish) Wheatear too.

SEE WHAT I MEAN...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The other 2 seemed to be on a circuit with a flock of Tits etc., so never stopped long enough for pix, and i actually didn't see either of them. The flock did include Great, Blue, Long-tailed and Coal Tits, & Goldcrest. The one noticeable bird though was Chaffinch, there was an almost continuous stream of them while we were there. Little flocks of 6, or sometimes 10/12....but nothing else with them.
A return to Holkham, still didn't get to see the Buzzard though.............better luck tomorrow huh!
