An early morning walk to Burnham Overy Dunes held no surprises unlike yesterday but was as pleasant as ever.
Flocks of Starlings were tumbling around the marsh.
Some 40 plus Bramblings were feeding in a hedge and a Stonechat finally sat still for a nano second to be photographed.
Not much else, but news of a Barred Warbler by the harbour had Oli and I dropping in en route to breakfast. Typically elusive but it did show briefly.
The elusive Radde's must be out there somewhere - indeed it was and over coffee back at the Deepdale Cafe the pager announced a Radde's Warbler at the end of the broad walk at Burnham Overy Dunes - just where we had been ! - Bum, but that's birding. Winds turning briefly south, then mid week more easterlies forecast...... Oh boy here we go again hopefully
