Horsey run-around!

Just a brief window of opportunity this morning, so (with nothing special around the County) I drove over to Horsey Gap and walked a six-mile loop north and then south.

Lots of Stonechats and Wheatears and at least two reeling Grasshopper Warblers were notable, as were several pairs of Marsh Harriers and Sparrowhawks. A few Swallows and Whimbrel flew through but best of all was a flock of seven Cranes 'escorting' a helicopter in from the North Sea!

Still a few seals, including a youngish pup being harassed by a Retriever: its daft young cow of an owner seemed to be amused by the whole thing.... I took her photograph, but have decided not to put it on the blog.

Last stop was Breydon, where a Whimbrel gave close views and a Rough-legged Buzzard even closer ones on the way out of Yarmouth (but nowhere to stop unfortunately!)
