Mon 26 September
Gunton beach- Wheatear and 1 Wheatear by Oval. At Carlton Marshes I met Rene by the first gate on the left just past the Spider dyke and he pointed out a Wall Brown perched in foliage just before the gate, Rene photographed it and the butterfly then flew into the field where I photographed it leaving it still perched there. At the Carlton marshes Scrape 1 then an 2 immature buff peach coloured breasted Ruff, 2 Black- tailed Godwit and 5 Greenshank seen, Sparrows Nest 1 Willow Warbler, Good to see Tony B and we both made our way to Gunton ORT. Really nice to see Chris M and together we had a female Blackcap & Pied Flycatcher seen in a small oak tree. The Flycatcher seemed to do a circuit and occasionally revisted the tree and seen perched on a branch. At Corton old SW, a Wryneck north side 7 posts from end really good clear view, plus a Black Redstart flew onto fence then perched in field then flew over cliff edge onto beach. At Gunton Warren, 2 Whinchat seen by the burnt gorse bushes but no sign of the sought after Wryneck. In the evening at 7.20pm and 7.30pm a Common Sandpiper flew south west heard calling twice over garden but not seen.
