A winters weekend in Norfolk

Norfolk 28th & 29th January

I was lucky that after days of grey skies in London, I woke on Saturday morning to a beautiful sunrise in North Norfolk.

Below are a few pictures from the weekend


Dartford Warbler on the coastal heathland







Grey Partridges, the female is in a plumage I cannot recall ever seeing before.






The coastal fields by Weybourne were full of Pink-footed Geese, in the background you can see the dangers for migrating birds that cross the North Sea.


Tundra, European and possibly one Greenland White-fronted Goose were 
among the Pink-feet 









White-fronted Geese come in off the sea at Eccles


The fragile sandy cliff at Happisburgh shows signs that the recent storms have taken away more of the land.


Sanderling on the beach near Sea Palling, waders are few here due to the constant movement of the sands, meaning that food is harder to find.





Turnstone 



A flutter of Snow Buntings, they really blend in with the flints on the beach.
