White-rumped Sandpiper at Cley

A 'cameo' expedition to the North Coast for Brian and me (I had to be home early afternoon!) found us at Cley around 8 o'clock. We walked out to the centre hides and soon found ourselves looking at some decent birds: six typically dozy Spoonbills, four Little Gulls and - a new bird for Brian - a White-rumped Sandpiper.

A little patience (and constant fiddling with the camera!) produced some half-decent shots (well - good enough to i/d from, anyway!)

After coffee (and the sad news that Pat, the excellent Vol at Cley, is leaving soon) we moved to Kelling Quags and then Holt Country Park on the lookout for Butterflies and Odonata. Apart from distant views of Hairy Hawkers and Broad-bodied Chasers there was little to see, so we went home!
