Robin dip

With totally clear skies and a big moon (and with the dip monkey) it was no wonder that yesterday's Rufus Tailed Robin had departed.
We work the surrounding hedges of Warham Greens and find several Brambling, Sisken and plenty of thrushes moving as well as a single Tree Pipit, Little and Barn Owl and Peregrine and Marsh Harrier over the saltings.
Onto Stiffkey fen where a distant Bluethroat was seen in company of several Stonechat and a vocal Yellow-browed warbler along the footpath and two Curlew Sandpiper on the flood and a female Merlin getting harassed by local corvids.
A Raddes Warbler in the hand at Weybourne showed well !! all thanks to Monkeys rally driving skills.
