Expensive Year Tick!

Thursday April 21
Still no IPads delivered to the Norwich Apple Store this morning. Lucky I phoned first. Very disappointing. (Latest news: Friday April 22, success at last).
At a loose end because of the aborted trip, I printed and sorted our Scotland trip list, made the short dentist visit (they phoned yesterday and asked me to call), and we drove to Cley.
The pager - announced  two Whimbrel were in their favourite short grass field viewable from the Iron Road car park albeit 50 yards away.

Geordie David saved us a walk, no sign of any Whinchats, always an iffy spring migrant, they tend to fly through. He also said, more disapointingly, that there was no sign of the Wood Sandpiper on Pat's Pool.
A lot of petrol for one bird but we do love them. Many more on Mull in ten days time I suspect.
28 best black bib and tucker Golden Plovers on the Eye Field.
We drove past the icecream van !!
