Day One Norfolk Hols!

Arrived late morning after a later setting off time from home than normal, with Birdguides alerts going off every few minutes, went directly to Holme NOA to see the Barred Warbler but not showing well, moved over to the Red-breasted Flycatcher but it had decided to change position and was in a bush that had you looking directly into the sun, found it very difficult to see, as it was very mobile, did get a glimpse of it's posteria a couple of times, so left the Die Hards to it, as I had found a bush absolutely full of Butterflies, phone alert had us dash off to Titchwell for a Baird's Sandpiper, which had just gone when we arrived, but got a shot of a Little Egret, so the trip was not all waste, only to have the alert that a Wryneck had been found along the path by the sand dunes back at Holme NOA (Sods Law LOL), so back we went but the Wryneck had not been seen for some time, so spent three hours watching the Barred Warbler in the hopes the Wryneck would show itself again, could not get any better shots of the Warbler than I already have and had to leave to book into accommodation, only to have alert go off later saying the Wryneck had re-appeared around 6pm, so quite a frustrating first day.
