Morning on the North Coast

Brian, Norman and I dodged the snow showers to walk around the Cley 'loop', from the Coastguards, to the East Bank, round past the VC and back along Beach Road. Although the Glaucous failed to put in an appearance, there were other interesting birds to look at: Barn Owl, Guillemot, Pintail, Scoter, lots of Red-throated Divers, a few mipits and a small flock of Snow Buntings.

After tea and scones we moved along to Blakeney, where a striking Herring / Lesser Black-backed Gull hybrid was masquerading as a Yellow-legged Gull  in the wildfowlers' enclosure. A walk out to the sea and back added very little to the day's tally so we drifted home (via a still Glauc-less Coastguards!)
