The new winter flooding scrape at Sustead Common
An amazing amount of rain over the last 24 hours has meant very little birding I’m afraid. Monday was spent volunteering on the reserve at Cley, Tuesday began bright and early with an NENBC coordinated sea-watch at Happisburgh – high-lights of which included five Common Sandpiper along the beach, Arctic Skua, a nice flock of noisy Whimbrel and loads of Gannet. Then it was on to Sustead, where the rest of the day and most of today has been spent watching the creation of our winter flooding scrape and tidying up afterwards.
