A beautiful but slow morning at the coast

Today was surprisingly quiet at Waxham. Clear skies led to a heavy frost but turned into a glorious morning. Unfortunately the birds didn't seem to be taking advantage of this settled sunny weather and very little visible migration was taking place. A grasshopper warbler was the first bird in the net followed shortly by a firecrest which wasn't really a surprise, with them being widespread at various coastal sites in Norfolk in the last few days. Still a great bird every time! A Whimbrel and a couple of Yellow wagtails passed overhead, a White wagtail was on the campsite and 2 grasshopper warblers were singing. Hopefully, numbers wise, it will improve this week.
