All preperation

At the moment a lot of my time is being put into organising the tours later in the year. However, the day tours around Norfolk are still happening. The fourth, or is it the fifth, visit to the Brecks in south Norfolk this last week probably gave the best prolonged views of Goshawk I’ve had in many years. A female and two males. I hope they breed but as yet I’ve not seen them in ‘full on’ display just cavorting, so to speak. By necessity the photograph below is taken at (great) distance.

Some good views of Great Grey Shrike too this week but again a little distant to photograph.

Website Down

Sometimes despite best intentions things go wrong. The wildlifetoursandeducation website is down and has been for around a week now. Frustrating or what! If you have any queries or bookings just give me a call on either 01263 576 995 or 07833 463 034. In the meantime here’s a photo of a local adder which sort of sums up the way I feel at the moment.

Raving about birds

On the 11th February we were just having a bite to eat having seen the Ferruginous Duck at Holkham when a chance look up had me thinking of two very high flying birds … ‘They’re big corvids!’. Even as I put my sandwich and drink down the identification became self evident as a distant but gruff ‘Cronk’ rang out through the cold clear air.

Although these two appear to be doing the rounds Ravens in Norfolk are scarce. I suspect that may not be the case for much longer.
