Had a bit of a mooch along the coast today.

Highlights were:-
Cley - American wigeon with small wigeon flock by the east bank and 2 adult pale bellied brent geese in the same area. 2 adult and a juv pale bellied brents were with the large flock of dark bellies buy the beach carpark.

Stopped off at the Stiffkey roadside flood which was looking cracking - full of water and ducks. 83 pintail, 480 teal, 492 wigeon, 35 gadwall, 30 shoveler and 15 black tailed godwits.
Ended the afternoon at the Warham Greens roost. A nice surprise came in the from of 22 pale bellied brent geese and an adult black brant with the brent flock that was commuting between the arable fields and the saltmarsh. 8 ringtail hen and 2 female marsh harriers were in the roost.
