After the storm: North Coast with Martin...

Quiet in every way! Despite an early start at Salthouse and a good walk along the beach, the most interesting things we came across were literally thousands of sea-wrecked starfish of several species and a pair of Stonechats. After coffee at Cley we continued westwards, pausing to view a very distant Waxwing at Burnham Norton and a number of Common Buzzards, including a flock of four...

Titchwell was not too crowded, but we decided to walk the beach to Thornham Point, picking up the expected waders (Knot, both Godwits, Sanderling, Grey Plover etc) and two drake Goldeneye on the way. At the Point we saw the five Shorelarks, but they were far too distant even for record shots! The beach was absolutely littered with Razor Clams...

Last items of interest were a Siskin by the Reception Centre (which just would not turn its head!) and a Chinese Water Deer. And so home, via a barren Stiffkey: just a few Egrets and Marshies...
