Local patches - Weybread and Dickleburgh Moor

There hasn't been much activity from me recently, or much motivation in what is rapidly becoming an even worse autumn migration than last year. 

We did spend a night at Weybread in our motorhome (mainly because we didn't dare go much further during this ridiculous fuel shortage) - both Trifid Bur Marigold and Nodding Bur Marigold were growing side by side and I also found my own Water Figwort. A local walk around the Pulhams also revealed some local Sharp-leaved Fluellen which was also pleasing.

Last night (4 October), I spent a pleasant couple of hours at Dickleburgh Moor were the 1yr male Stonechat was still present and a very welcome local tick. 2 Ruff, 2 Green Sandpipers, 11 Snipe, c6 Meadow Pipits, Common Buzzard and 6 Egyptian Geese plus a Stoat were the other noteworthy sightings.
