With the north winds forecast I headed up to Cley this morning for a bit of a sea watch stopping off at Buckenham Marsh for a couple of Pec Sands and then a couple of before landing at the coast guards car park. The weather looked good but the going was slow.

Four Arctic Skua, Five , several Manx Shearwaters, lots of Gannets. A few groups of Eider and Scoter, four Arctic Terns, two Med Gulls and a single Little Gull.

On the beach a single was the highlight. A large long winged Shearwater flew east but remains unidentified depsite a few people saying Sooty!. I thought I could see a white belly on it but it was too long in the wing to be Manx.

The two guys next to me had a Storm Petrel but I couldn’t get on it. No pictures today with the weather etc so here’s a few of last weeks Cattle Egrets at Elmley.
