Over the weekend weather forecast for Sunday and Monday was promising - strong easterlies and enough rain to knock stuff down. Expectations were high. Eventually the wind wasn't quite easterly, and the rain arrived too late. Despite the negative reports of no migrants along the N Norfolk Coast today, I headed out this afternoon in horrible weather with Graham, Nick and my son Uri, We checked Stiffkey campsite and the hedges towards Warham Green. At first it looked OK with large numbers of hirundines and quite many Pied Wagtail in the campsite:
Barn Swallows and 2 House Martins
It was very windy, we got very wet and saw very little.
