All quiet on the eastern front

Tried the golf course on the way to work. The wind was blowing in from the north and the only migrant was a Sandwich Tern, wished I was at the Old Nab and had the day.

After work with news of Red-breasted Flycatchers around I tried Saltwick. I focused on a small area and especially in the spot where the last Iccy was. There were certainly birds but they were elusive. A Phyllosc was glimpsed, a couple of things flitted, a likely culprit came out of a bush and towered up in to the sky and went off west and finally repeated very brief views of a flycatcher like job were too brief, distant and inconclusive.

I did see 2 Ringed Plovers but that was about it.
