Hmmm. Sacred Ibis, from Burnham Overy Dunes

Started at Cley today where we luckily saw 3 Temminks Stints before they disappeared. Lots of Wheatear in the Eye Field along with a summer plumaged Golden Plover.

Charlie and me then walked along to Burnham Overy Dunes for very little reward! there were several Wheatears and a few Sedge Warblers. A flock of 20 Whimbrel were actually quite tolerant of my clumsy photography. A dull bird day was livened up by the Sacred Ibis on the Marsh.

A stop at Titchwell in the afternoon gave us Common Sandpiper, Little Terns, Common Terns, Red-crested Pochard and a 1st summer Little Gull.
