What To Do?

Saturday February 20

Go birding of course...... 
But where on a half term Saturday ?  Horsey and Winterton beach via North Walsham to take my laptop in to be mended. It has stopped charging but, the problem is the socket not the connecting lead which I had suspected when I decided to take the whole machine in.

Eccles area

Male Sparrowhawk.

Raptor layby, south of Horsey Mill

Golden Plover, Lapwings, 2 Marsh Harriers, a few Pink-footed Geese. A Peregrine flew across the road as we set off towards Somerton.

Winterton Beach

In no more than 20 minutes,  which is how long it took me to get cold and wet scoping outside. 4 Common Scoter, 12+ Red-throated Divers, 1 Great Northern Diver, 3 Gannets and a few Cormorants.

Flooded fields north and west of West Somerton

60+ Golden Plover, 100+ lapwing, 10 Dunlin, 1 Ring-tail Harrier, 1 Marsh Harrier, 3 Ruff, 13 Snipe. Fancy having to wait this long to add the last two to the year list.
