Abbey Farm Hide is becoming run down. The concrete approach path ever more thickly strewn with dead foliage, fence in a poor state of repair and a hide in need of a sweeping. I think Ill take a yard broom next time, it's slippery for a start. I was in time to see a Turtle Dove fly away but no sign of either Kingfishers nor Little Owl.
The back road to West Newton had a male Grey Partridge fossicking near a wheat field. I managed a few shots from Pam's window before he stole away.One day I'll get a photo I'm pleased with.......
Avocet young diving for warmth
High tide at Snettisham - again - nesting birds on the shingle ridge the main attraction. Quite delightful.
The wader flocks at high tide are very distant on the far point, not even scopeable. I still love the place, whatever the tide.
Coffee at Holme, not much singing to-day. Who could blame them ?
Lunch at Brancaster Staithe enjoying Little Terns fishing on the ebbing tide, our coastal drive ending at Salthouse.
An astonishing 81 birds clocked up on a less than propitious Norfolk June day.
