Norfolk 1st october 2007.

Unfortunately the blyth's reed warbler had departed so i headed along to cley and started to walk towards blakney point. Not far from the car park i noticed the sabines gull that had been frequenting the area for some time, it gave good views in flight and landed on the sea close by too, this was only the 2nd sabines for me and in a different plumage than my 1st bird.

On the way back to the car park i found a red throated diver close in to the shoreline, it was moulting from adult plumage to winter plumage and had a reduced but still bright red throat patch, but all the same a lovely bird.
