So all week it has been warm and sunny so of course come Saturday.... yup grey and
Highlights of the journey to Norfolk? some idiot reversing down the hard shoulder and the Sausage, Egg and Bacon roll :D
First stop Flitcham Abbey Farm, alas no Little Owl but there were plenty of Red Legged Partridge
There were also some Tree Sparrow's about.
Off to Choseley Barns, we passed a field full of Meadow Pipits, at Choseley the wind was bitter! But there were at least two dozen Yellowhammers and the males were glorious. A Skylark was in the sky singing and 3 Corn Buntings joinged the Yellowhammers and some Golden Plover took off. Glorious!
But the window was getting up and the skies were getting grey. As we approached Titchwell the heavens opened. I looked at Trish and asked if she REALLY wanted to go to Titch? Uh no was the answer. So we headed South and arived at the smallish National Trust property of Peckover House.
A stroll around the Gardens.
This chap was very friendly.
I had ummed and ahed on what lens to use. The compromise of a travel zoom was rewarded.
And so to lunch a rather yummy Vegetable soup.
Alas you can't take pics in the house. The house is not large but was very pleasant. Nice to hear Fur Elise being played on the piano eh Trish! ;)
Another wander around the garden.
We stopped back in the excellent cafe for a cuppa and some lovely cake.
The garden will be lovely in a few months. I think another visit will be necessary!
A Sparrowhawk whizzed across the front of the car on the way back.
A nice day but could we have the sun back please!
