Blakeney Lapland Buntings, 25 February 2016

A flying visit up to Blakeney this morning to pay homage to the small group of wintering Lapland Buntings along the seawall from the quay carpark. Seeing them was easy enough but they didn't come anywhere near as close as I was hoping so my one shot below is shit! In all there were c7 with a couple of Reed Buntings, several singing Skylarks but no sign of any Twite.
On the way to Wells (where the Shag was nowhere to be seen at the quay) a Red Kite was circling by the coast road between Morston and Stiffkey. 3 Little Grebes at Wells Quay and a Common Buzzard near Corpusty were the only other things worth a mention.
Not my best birding day but you can't turn your nose up at nice scope views of Laps!
