An evening at Cley

The late run of migrants has now dried up, so with a day off work i stayed at home, tidying the garden and house. A Spoonbill and Roseate Tern had been seen at Cley, so when Laura suggested an evening stroll, Cley was our destination. We parked at the Coastguards and walked over to the North Scape. The Spoonbill was long gone but consolation was in the shape of a Curlew Sandpiper and Little Stint. 2 Little Tern rested on one of the spits and large number of Black-tailed Godwit fed, along with Avocet and Knot. Terns dropped in frequently and i was delighted when a Roseate Tern appeared, Common Tern and Sandwich Tern also stopped off. A lovely evening, which also turned up a few surprising birds.
