Stormy seas at Walcott, but calmer ones on the Moon!

Since we had a powercut on the Heath that started at midday, Linda and I decided to brave the winds for a little seawatch while we waited for the electricity to be reconnected.

First goodie was a smashing little Merlin on a telegraph pole at Horsey: no photo, sadly.

The joy of Walcott is that you can park on the seafront with your window open and truly enjoy the passage of seabirds in total comfort: old man's birding exemplified! Mind you: spume and spray filled the air as the tide rose and, after an hour, we decided that discretion would be the better part of valour and headed home.

While we were watching lots of wildfowl headed north (Wigeon, Pintail, Teal, Scoter, Brents) as well as a few Gannets, auks and waders.

Arriving home, I realised the skies were epically clear (and that power had been restored!) so I grabbed a few images of the Moon with my 500mm tp.
