Ring Ouzel, Burnham Overy, 6th October
There were a few other thrushes around - 40 or so Song Thrushes but no sign of the Blackbird arrival that was reported elsewhere - in fact I didn't see a single Blackbird! Not many other migrants though - 4 Blackcaps, a couple of Chiffchaffs but little else. Overhead the odd Siskin and a Grey Wagtail, and a Swallow and 2 House Martins through, but pretty quiet really.
There was a Pintail among the Mallards, a Greenshank and 2 Sandwich Terns in the channel, and I heard Water Rail and Bearded Tits calling. Also vocally obvious were at least 5 Cetti's Warblers - at least 3 at the reedy pool, another nearby and one just SW of Holkham pines.
On the way home a Red Kite flew over the road between South Creake and Sculthorpe - seem to see them round here quite often.
On Monday 8th I searched for migrants at Heacham during my lunch break. No luck with migrants but a nice showy Little Owl was good value, until it was chased off by a Magpie.
