October week- part 3

Thursday morning I birded Horsey gap first but the only migrant at all was a rather rotund an upright looking Northern Wheatear (thinking maybe leucorhoa?). 

Northern Wheatear - maybe Greenland race?

At least this Kestrel stayed still long enough for a decent shot.

Happisburgh was dead with no sign of the Yellow-browed Warbler. I stopped for forty winks at the "bird obs" and finished the evening with a very pleasant stroll along Trimingham beach. There were no migrants to see but as the sun dropped the wind eased off considerably and I rather hoped that combined with the clear skies – maybe, just maybe something would show up on my final day!!
