Finally, the 3rd Diver Falls

The day started at Holme, where a circumnavigation of the Golf Course through Old Hunstanton produced 2 or 3 Wheatear, a pair of Stonechat and my first House Martin of the year. Onto Heacham, there was no sign of the Redstart, but a cracking male Ring Ouzel was seen briefly, before a micro-glider thingy spook all the birds. Two more Wheatear were seen. Then, the yearlisters dread occurred, when news of the Black-throated Diver at Ormsby came through. We made our way over and had frustrating views of the bird, which was spending much more time under the water than on it! From here we spent a bit of time cruising the east coast, with a couple of Black Redstarts he best birds.
