Doing a Stint at Cley!

A Little Stint, in fact! Linda and I decided on a morning on the North Coast, starting at the centre hides at Cley before moving to Bishop's Hide.

Lots of Ruff / Reeves, Black & Bar-tailed Godwits and Golden Plovers, as well as a few Dunlin, Snipe and Avocets. Star bird was a Little Stint that came nearly close enough for photography: as I was clicking away, the view-finder suddenly went opaque! Looking in the back of my lens I saw that the final element had come loose inside.... Ouch!

After coffee and scones, we headed home, anticipating a quick visit to London Camera Exchange. On the way, we stopped at Holt Country Park, where there were still dozens of Silver-washed Fritillaries and White Admirals, sadly all showing battle scars!

Into Norwich to drop off the Sigma 500 and home to find two Painted Ladies in the garden.
