Norfolk - 28.1.18

Glaucous Gull

Purple Sandpiper

I again joined Brendon and Ricky for a day out but this time in Norfolk.

First stop was Santon Downham to hopefully see the good sized flock of Parrot Crossbill but they weren't seen. Siskin and Brambling were though so not a total blank.

At Mundesley I added the juvenile Glaucous Gull to my Norfolk list and even saw it from the local café while having a nice fry up!

Cromer golf course eventually turned up the juvenile Iceland Gull just as we were heading back to the car. This was also a Norfolk tick for me.

2 Purple Sandpiper were seen on the seafront rocks at Sheringham.

Passing through Weybourne I noticed a flock of about 200 Pink-footed Geese in a roadside field.

Stopping off at Salthouse for a flock of Snow Bunting found us 2 Ruff on the flooded field but the buntings didn't play ball.

Egyptian Goose fell at Cley and our final stop at Warham Greens added 2 ringtail Hen Harrier and a pair of Red-breasted Merganser along with a female Merlin. up to 115 for the year.
