Norfolk (part3)

After yesterdays long day, we gave ourselves a gentle, and relaxed start, getting up around 7:30 to clear blue sky. After an excellent full-english breackfast we drove up to Cley in the hope that the previous days Temminck's Stint would still be around. Unfortunately it wasn't. We spent most of the day wandering round the reserve, brief views of a couple of Beared Tits and good views of a pair of Little Terns were probably the highlights.

On leaving Cley we called into Cley Spy as Mike needed a replacement eyepiece for his scope - it had fallen int Rhaslas Pond during the week damaging the lens and filling it with water. A chat with the guys at the Cley reserve had confirmed they had a second hand eyepiece. On pulling into the car park at CleySpy, Mike first started towards the shop before remembering that he's probably need his scope. So back to the car, dug out his scope, then he decided to get his tripod, so put the scope back in the boot and started back to the shop with the tripod (san's scope!) before retuning to get the scope (again). The lens was awaiting him and was in excellent condition apart from a few specks of dust around the edges. Bargain buy of the year for Mike.

Another hour was spent hunting Monty's, but again it was a no show, so we set off on the long haul back home to the rain.
