Good to be Out

Tuesday February 14

Pam fancied an afternoon cuppa at Cley Centre. We tried Salthouse Beach first, the usual Turnstones and Gulls feeding on the seed and oats spread by a local man, no Snow Buntings.... 
After a quick look at Cley Coastguards and its flock of Golden Plovers, it was cuppa time, water for me, looking out over the marsh. 8 Avocets and 2 Pintail to add th the month list, Pam also saw a male Marsh Harrier displaying to a female whilst I was elsewhere.
Another look at Salthouse. As we entered  the car park, the flock of c40 Snow Buntings flew in, landed at the far end and then back to the spread foodat the western end. Lovely views in very poor light, photos were terrible. I should have got out and tried stalking but would have disturbed them for the gathered admirers.
I did manage a few shots of the single Knot and Sanderling with a few Dunlin, also feeding on the grassy knoll.
