Car parking is a bit of a problem at the moment, but Chris managed to find a space. The first chap that we spoke to, pointed out a red backed shrike to us, a good start for the day.
Our previous two outings at Hartlepool and at Lakenheath had been remarkable, so we were not expecting anything fantastic, but you never know, and shrike for starters was a good omen. After donning coats to keep out the cool breeze, we went to the seawatching hide. We could see the sea, well some of it, it was quite misty, so we were only able to see about a mile off shore, and only saw 3 gannets and a possible little tern flying north.we decided to move on to the Canal scrape, to see if things would improve. However on the way to the car we were entertained by swallows and sand martins sitting on the wires.
