|'Possible' Siberian Chiffchaff|
Anyone got any thoughts on this Chiffchaff?
One of the birds i had been hoping for, that had been one of many migrants seen last weekend, was Long-eared Owl. So when was reported from Walsey Hills, along with 2 Yellow-browed Warblers, that was the next stop........or was it? We got to the Walsey Hills car park, and drove straight past....the car park was full, and there were cars all along the road there too. So, we went to Salthouse, forgetting that, there was NO beach car park anymore, what a real shame, i used to really like it around that car park..........Snow & Lapland Buntings, Shorelark, Waders including Purple Sandpiper have been just some of the birds i have seen there in the past. Wont be so easy anymore I'm afraid. So as we drove back to the Wallsey Hills car park, someone pilled out, and i pulled in, good timing....
Will come back later, when the crowds die down, as long as they don't flush it first!!!!!!

Another quick trip to Stiffkey, produced the Yellow-browed Warbler again, but this time, it only showed very briefly when i arrived, and disappeared, it was still there though as i heard it call. But i didn't see it again....

The Chaffinch migration was still going on
though, and this time there was a Brambling
So a trip to Norfolk without visiting Titchwell.....shame the migrants had disappeared, but still a decent weekend.
Will be back again soon...................
