Leftover August Drift

A few bits and bobs were leftover from the easterly drift the previous week in Norfolk. Nothing too rare, but standard fare including a showy Red-backed Shrike at West Runton and a Wryneck at Weybourne Camp. Plenty of Willow Warblers and Whitethroats moving through, with a scatter of Wheatears flashing about, and a few Whinchats to keep me interested. Sol seemed quite keen to add a few species to his brand new British List and was especially happy to get Wryneck up on his big sister, who missed it due to horse riding.
