Continuation from the previous post (Norfolk Day 4)......
With just strong winds and poor light to contend with during the previous four days the forecast for day 5 was not so promising with heavy showers expected but nothing like the north-east of UK was experiencing. My main objective was to share the geese flight hopefully at sunset with our friends so with many hours to fill we headed off to Moreston Quay.
At this point A and I decided to stop off at Stiffkey Marshes whilst our friends headed elsewhere. Well the rain kept us trapped in the car for nearly an hour but we then doned our full wet weather gear and headed towards Warham Green. Lapwing and Golden Plover were feeding in the fields but seemed to disappear over the brow of the hill every time I lifted the camera up!
plus Brent Geese feeding.
We also added Skylark to the trip list plus a very distant (probable) sighting of a Whooper Swan family flying inland from the seaward side. After munching our packed lunch we headed off to towards Holkham Hall to catch up with two of our friends. (Day 5 - Part 2 to follow soon) FAB
