From here, I headed for another sea watch, at Sheringham but very little apart from more guillemots. From the eastern clifftop carpark a purple sandpiper became year lister 201 and several turnstone could be seen on the beach. However, the light was becoming very strange, brooding and dark and on the horizon, clearly a sea squall was happening and it appeared to be heading inland and towards the east of the county where I had planned to go! Winterton Dunes is not the place to be caught in a heavy rain and hail storm, so I abandoned that plan and headed back to the west, stopping at Salthouse, Cley and Holkham before finishing, in what I hoped would be good light at Titchwell.

4+ marsh harriers, a short eared and barn owl, both over Thornham Marsh whilst a flock of golden plover came in to roost with godwits, avocets, dunlin and a couple of ruff and redshanks.
All in all, a reasonable day.70+ species seen, but not one offering good photo opportunities.
Later this week, maybe a trip to Kent, Oare and Dungeness perhaps, depending on weather.
