Trumpeter Finch @ Cley

Having laid in after yesterdays mammoth birdwatch, Laura and i went to Hemsby, as i had an urge to spend my large pot of coppers and fancied some doughnuts. Arriving home Gary called " have you seen it!.....seen WHAT?". He had been trying to call most of the afternoon to tell me about the Trumpeter Finch at Cley. Planning to go first thing tomorrow Laura then suggested going there and then, 40 minutes later i was standing on the East Bank. After a bit of a wait the Trumpeter Finch was eventually located again on the shingle ridge. We then got some great views as the bird feed on the bank, a stunning pink male, lit by the low sun. Another Year tick, Norfolk tick and Life tick! Walking back we watched Bearded Tits, a Cuckoo, Marsh Harriers and a Barn Owl all flying over the reedbed. An altogether enjoyable evening.
