Pied Crow

I explained carefully to my guests for the day there had been a ‘rare’ bird seen in the area of the dunes in which we were walking. Just in case they saw a funny crow I gave them instruction to shout up. I explained it’s undeterminable status, gave them a brief description and told them it would be nice to see. Several Hobbies, Great White Egrets, Bittern, Grey Seals, Water Deer, Norfolk Hawkers and Swallowtails, among many others, later, I bid them good-day and wished them a pleasant stay in Norfolk for what remained of their holiday.

It wasn’t until I drove through Cromer I received a message to tell me the Pied Crow had turned up about a mile from the flat just down the road from me. How could I ignore it?

OK no doubt there will be much discussion about if it’s an escape or not, if it’s the same bird that was seen at Spurn Point and if it could have got here on board a ship. Well sure it’s right to have these discussions but it matters not to me … it was good to see it acting as wild as the Jackdaws, Rooks and the odd Crow with which it was associating.
