I made a flying visit to Norfolk to see my mother-inlaw on Saturday. Fog lingered all day, making birding difficult. I did however manage to see a couple of interesting things.

I love the Waxwing with the single branch and berries against the plain background - looks like it ought to be depicted in the form of a Japanese wood-block print.

It is just a shame that the light or lack of light made getting a decent photo tricky
