Carpe diem!

A run up to the North Coast was a couple of days late, but I was away all weekend, so Martin and I seized the moment and enjoyed a walk in the sunshine.

First stop was Gramborough Hill, where a patrolling Hobby and a Wheatear were good to see. Moving to Walsey Hills produced another Wheatear, several Willow-Chiffs and lots of insects, including five Wall Browns and Small Coppers, as well as plenty of Migrant Hawkers and Common Darters.

After coffee at Cley (great idea digging up the car park at the busiest time of year!) we finished off at Kelling Water Meadows, enjoying great views of Stonechats (complete with 'bling!) & Whinchats (three of each) and a colourful, streaky pipit that kept us hoping for a while... Fleeting views of a Yellow-browed Warbler and a decidedly 'honey-ish' Buzzard completed the day out!
