2nd April 2012 - Weybourne

On our last day we were alerted to the presence of a Richard’s Pipit in the area by our guide so we changed our plans and headed to Weybourne. 

A great sighting of Cetti’s Warbler added to our Cetti’s fortnight and Stonechat were happily showing in the area we were looking for the Pipit.  Unfortunately we didn’t find the Pipit although our guide thought he heard him at one point.  We also took in a brief detour to Kelling Water Meadow which was rather lovely and then up the hill to where there were people flying model (large!) airplanes.  Fearing slightly for our lives, we escaped back down to the beach and marvelled at a nest (?) of mining bees, although I’m not sure what species they were, some more inspecting of photos needs to be done I think!  On our way back down a Tree Pipit was spotted by our eagle eyed/eared guide, a first for both Stuart and I. 
We popped to Blakeney for the seal trip which is always wonderful, then we reluctantly went back to London.
