The first stop, Sheringham, for the eclipse drake King Eider seen distantly, drifting slowly west, on a calm sea. Sheringham is a lovely place.
Then onto Salthouse, where the 'eastern' Stonechat of Eastern Russian descent was seen, again distantly, extremely twitchy, flighty, and at times atypically elusive.
The constrasting pale underparts and dark under-wing coverts were fortuitously captured, the possibility of Saxicola stejnegeri.
The sun was brilliant, the south-west breeze keen, the expanse of a blue Norfolk sky stretched out over the sea, folding back onto the horizon. It is a fabulous place. Laying on the beach, looking out to sea, where two more Little Auk flew through along with a couple of Red-throated Diver and Razorbill.
It was nice being still, listening to the breeze whip off the pebbles, lying prostrate, staring into the oblivious sky.
A Merlin dashed low over the marsh.
