Winterton, Horsey Yarmouth and Breydon: very little to show for a long walk!

Sunny day and easterlies for 48 hours, so (despite all my birding buddies being away / working / recovering from heart surgery) I decided to have a wander through the dunes.

Despite walking the round trip to the blocks and then past the Hermanus and back, all I 'kicked up' were a few Mipits and Skylarks. On the sea were a few Red-throated Divers and Brents....

A move to Horsey produced a group of three Cranes - always good to see - a Buzzard and a Marsh Harrier, while Yarmouth Cemetery seemed utterly birdless: just a Muntjac to brighten up the visit! Breydon held flocks of Avocets and Little Egrets, but the light was appalling for photography.

The drive home provided close views of two (presumably wire-hopping) White Storks: nowhere to stop, so photo courtesy of Brian Tubby.
