A cold weekend in Norfolk

Norfolk 9th to 10th December

The weekend started cold but sunny with cloud arriving around mid-day on the 9th. I awoke the following morning to see that the snow that had been forecast hadn't arrived, instead we had a wet morning followed by very grey skies in the afternoon. 

The star bird of the weekend was a Little Auk that bombed north on the 11th while I checked out the Snow Buntings.

Below are some photos from the weekend.
