A trip to north Norfolk was an indifferent day, weather wise, with very little avian activity close to the lens. After a short sea-watch at Cley beach we dropped in to the visitors center carpark, from where the Wilson's Phalarope could be distantly seen, but not photographed.
This rare American vagrant occasionally makes its way over to Europe - unlike Alexander Wilson, who first described the bird. He headed in the opposite direction - heading for the New World after leaving his native Scotland.

Over at Titchwell, a few Little Egret could be seen feeding.

A sizeable flock of Bar-tailed Godwit on the freshmarsh.

There were plenty of Red Knot on view.

With winter not far away, groups of Pink-footed Geese could be seen arriving from the North. These birds were feeding near Wells.
