With the East Coast receiving migrants ago go, Oli and I decided that for our early morning walk we would avoid the crowds (as ever), no doubt Wells Woods was heaving with Radde's Warbler watchers, and do the broad walk at Brancaster Staithe. Right on the coast with some good cover - every chance of our own Radde's, Arctic and most definitely Yellow-browed.
Sadly it wasn't to be. But there were hundreds of Song Thrushes making landfall. It seemed like every bush had half a dozen and there was a continual passage overhead.
