Triple Wheatears

With some leave off during october during a good spell of east winds decided to head to norfolk around Burnham Overy Dunes had a nice walk along the sea wall towards the dunes with plenty of birds with a few Ringed Flovers, Dunlin and Redshanks feeding in the mud as the tide was out and lots of Curlews calling from around while a big flock of geese was feeding in the field mainly Brent Geese but a few Pink Footed as well while nearby a few Cettis Warblers were calling even a brief view of one and a nice Northern Wheatear was feeding up before heading south.

Decided to explore the dunes where came across a late Wall Butterfly before coming to the female Desert  Wheater which was showing reasonable well feeding down in the grass.

Then decided to go a for a walk in the dunes to look for the Isabelline Wheatear which had been seen after a while it was found in the dunes but due to flightly nature certain photographers decided to try and chase the bird at which point I decided to head back to the Desert Wheatear.

Spent sometime with the Desert Wheatear which was flycatching alot with the added bonus of a flyover Waxwing which was heard first but it then flew over our heads.
