Lots to Catch Up On!

Sorry for the wait on this post. Homework's just been flying out the window. Not much writing but plenty of pictures. On the Sunday after the last post, it was a late start because of all the fog, so we didn't leave until 9:30am. We got to Cley Beach at 11:45am, and the fog had cleared. We were told to just spend a bit of time on a beach, so that's what we did, and here's what we got.

And a Gannet fishing

We got some other great things too and these were probably the highlights. We got great views of 2 Juvenile Great Skua out at Sea, plus 3 flypasts of Red-throated Divers too.

We then moved to Warham Greens for a bit in the afternoon, and not much but a fantastic Male Blackcap was a nice find, and also about 70 Golden Plover over the Saltmarsh. 

Yesterday, I played Golf, and we got a great experience of a Muntjac deer running from the trees on the left hand side of the fairway straight towards the tee where we were. Within 10 yards, it turned left, but was a great sight. Also, I got my best ever views of a Jay, 10 yards away, eating berries when I shanked my ball into the trees :(. After that, I played really well, only 1 over handicap.

Happy Birding
