Larking About

News of a possible Short-toed Lark had me moving towards the coast. However, it had been flushed and with no direction given, I decided to head to Cley. Just before I arrived news came through that the bird had been refound and confirmed! A quick reroute had me gathered with a few others trying to relocate it. It was picked it up in flight and soon it was seen again on the deck before moving onto the coastal path, where it was seen well.

Short-toed Lark, West Runton - thanks to JF for rinding it and IP for relocating!

From here I moved onto Cley, where the imm Spoonbill was still present. The Wood Sandpiper was seen briefly before flying out of view. Small number of Ruff, all males, were seen, as well as a Little Ringed Plover. Two Little Terns were over the scrape and another 8 were seen flying west, along with a Common Tern, Gannet, Fulmar and Common Scoter.
Friary Hills was lovely, producing a brief Ring Ouzel, Yellow Wagtail and an excellent Hobby moving east.
