After a hairdresser visit first thing, the plan was to bird at Titchwell. I did not feel up to it, still coughing and suffering an infected sinuses thick head.
After a rest at home, we drove to Cley, parking at the centre intending to walk to Pat's. We had lunch in the cafe instead, scanning the marsh and pools from there. A single flying Black-tailed Godwit added to the sparse month list.
Spying a flock of Golden Plover on the Eye Field, we drove to the Beach Road car park, splashing through a large stretch of water on the approach. In the late afternoon sun, about 200 Goldies slept in a straggly line, Brent Geese feeding behind them.
Deciding not to walk beyond the Little Eye at Salthouse to see the Grey Phalarope nor walking to North Hide to see the Shorelark, we drove straight home.
