Monday 8th January 2007.

And so to Salthouse. The weather started lovely but the grey cloud soon came in. Still a small flock of Snow Buntings brightened things up. Not much off the sea. A few Divers and Auks.

Looking back from Salthouse beach.




A stop by the road...

He isn't going to feed us!!



Sulk!


On to Cley which was quiet. Still a showy Stonechat, some pinging Beardies, a noisey cettis, a Marsh Harrier and a bunch of Avocet were nice.



A bit dull but I think it is a bit atmospheric....


The famous Cley Windmill.


I'm obviously not a proper birder as I decided to visit a few churches (both ticked ages ago). Firsly Cley.







The slightly more "modern" Blakeney (a very friendly church I might add).




I'd have never got this with the other cam....








On to Holkam Hall Park for a nose round....






The weather then settled in so I settled in with a good book!!

So what do I think of the camera? Well it has its limitations obviously but given the light I am quite pleased. The image stablilsation got me shots I would never have got before. In good light it should be superb.

The new camera seems to work well. I'd like to see what you come up with on a sunny day.

ps: I didn't know you had made the last couple of posts, they weren't showing up on bloglines. Hmm, I wonder what else I have missed.
