Myself Bradders and Jono head to Warren Wood in Cromer to hopefuly connect with yesterday's Greenish and Western Bonelli's Warblers.

Arriving at 07:30 we meet up with Shaunboy and the Monkey, we split up to increase our chances of finding the birds and wasn't long before i glimpsed the Western Bonelli's but as weather deteriorated it wasn't till another couple off hours before we were all enjoying excellent views as it fed in the canopy loosely associating with the tit flock.

bonellis warbler my first since 1990!

The Greenish wasn't playing ball though and had to settle with just a call.

We then headed off to Cley where we caught up with a cracking juv Red-Backed Shrike at walsey hills and on the Reserve enjoyed good views of 8 Spoonbill, Curlew Sandpiper, Little Stint, Knot, Dunlin, Black tailed godwit, Common Sand, Avocet, Ruff and a fine juv Red Necked Phalarope

Wharem Greens produced a single Pied Flycatcher and 20+ Lesser Whitethroat.
