14th September (Cley/Titchwell)

A much windier and nastier day than yesterday. Had a pre-breakfast seawatch from Cley coastguards and recorded:

Lots of Gannets
7 Bonxies
11 Kittiwakes
6 Wigeon
1 Sooty Shearwater (west)
1 Arctic Skua

After breakfast drove to Titchwell to meet up with the RSPB group. Titchwell was very disappointing, probably due to the work being done there. The best birds were Marsh Harrier, Water Rail, 3 Little Stints and a few Bar-tailed Godwits.

I accidently dropped my telescope in the sand :-( but have managed to clean it fairly well.

I then drove home to try and beat the traffic but still ended up at a standstill on the M25 in the roadworks.

94 species over 3 days wasn't bad and I didn't do that much twitching!
