Empidonax Fly

Well we will have to probably wait a while till we find out the true identification of this bird, but what a Cracker, and full credit to all who braved the long slog up to Blakeney Point, we set off from London at 4am and not long after six we were at Cley beach car park in a gale force northerly wind along with forty car loads of other nutters willing to do the honours for all those waiting on news in there comfy homes !!

At 07:30 we arrive at the Plantation, and had to wait another three quarters of an hour before one of our group spotted the bird, and then the next hour was spent trying actually to get an half decent view, with a Little Bunting putting in a brief performance for all.

pics of probable long tails comments welcome??

these two flew along the point (sorry heavily cropped)

After great views we leave the point and head back adding all four Skua's and a Red-necked grebe plus great northen and red thoated divers.
