I've been to Norfolk today with Trish, Dave and Joy.
Trish was driving and the air turned blue around Brandon. The %$^$^£$$% speed camera flashed me!! I remained calmness personified even when she decided to almost ram a car on the way home.
We started at Holkham pines looking for migrants. Alas nothing rare but we did see Chiffchaff and Blackcap and loads of goldcrests. Nice to see the pink footed geese back in numbers and we saw 4 raptors (Buzzard, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and Marsh Harrier).
The Geese are an impressive sight.
Dave and Joy had to leave early and Trish and I headed off for lunch. We stopped at Morston Harbour for a "comfort break" , Trish wanted to go back to the posh hotel we visited last year at Blakeney but I put my foot down this time and as there was snack bar at Morston we ate in the car. Fresh Crab sandwiches and a pot of cray fish tails overlooking the sea, lovely.
We then walked from Morston to Blakeney via the coast path. 3 Wheatear being the higihlight.
At Blakeney there were lots of gulls and people crabbing.
On the way back a big flock of Black Tailed Godwit had appeared.
A lovely late September day.
I may be exaggerating a bit over the extent of Trish's bad language and putting my foot down over the sandwich!! Think she wants to go back ;)
