All quiet in Norfolk
A Brambling and Grey Wag over garden in Salle gave me hope that there would be some migrants on the coast.
In reality, although it felt autumnal, there were no migrants around
I can't believe Norfolk will not get a decent October rarity. The Sandhill Crane will of course be one of the rarest birds of the year to cross the county.
I am just glad I saw it (even if it did mean a rare trip out of the county!)
Last year the 'Alder Fly' was for me the star bird and I would be surprised if a rare american passerine does not get found this year as well....
Now ... A Parula or Y Rump Warbler (two big bogey birds of mine) would be very nice.
