RnP

The phalarope was miles off but the Avocets looked lovely

Female Red-necked Phalarope reported at Titchwell.
Drive there after work.
See it swimming about distantly.
Have to leave quickly as it's dusk and we have to put the tent up at Stiffkey, 15 miles along the coast.
Get to campsite (the one that had the overwintering Yellow-browed Warbler the other year) in a rush.
Put the tent up.
Go to the Stiffkey Red Lion for dinner.
They've stopped serving food, so eat some nuts and drink some more Aspall's.
Regulars give rousing rendition of first verse of Bohemian Rhapsody with beautiful piano accompaniment.
Bedtime.

Species added today:
184. Red-necked Phalarope
