Burnham Overy - Isabelline Wheatear

More of the same.  There was one at Easington.  I was there last week.  Then one turned up in Norfolk.  At Burnham Overy.  So I went.  I saw it.  It was lovely.  An Isabelline Wheatear.  Only the third for Norfolk I'm told.  A rare bird indeed.

I also saw a Pallas's Warbler (4th).  My third of the autumn.  Brief though.  There was also a Shorelark.  Looked like a young bird.  Not as gaudy as the adults.  Quite a scaly mantle.

Two Northern Wheatear also present.

A few conversations had.  A thoroughly satisfying afternoon.
