Friday February 10

At Natural Surroundings last Tuesday : our first Treecreeper of the year - on the feeding station tree support 2 metres away from the cafe window. There was also a Nuthatch, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, Blue and Great Tits and a Sparrowhawk flew through - twice - there and back again 10 minutes later.


A trip to pick up prescriptions in North Walsham culminated in the Sheringham car park above the Funky Mackerel.. As soon as we stopped,  2 Purple Sandpipers flew from the groyne in front of the pub to the rocks below us. Jammy. We didn't want to walk on such a dull grey day with a biting easterly.

Flowers have appeared in two pots of the alpine Iris I planted in the Autumn. Probably because they were taken into the leanto greenhouse for shelter from the torrential rain we had earlier in the winter. Then, I forgot to take them out again.......
The main varieties whicjh I planted in a trough and left outside, look as though they'll flower whilst I'm away. Ah well !!
