Deadly

False Morels are a fungi that’s not often found in Norfolk but they did make an appearance a week or so ago. With their purple velvet convoluted surface they do look quite delicious … but they are deadly poisonous … avoid at all cost.

A face only a mother could love!

Out with Derek & Jim Temple on the boat at Blakeney the other day. Not too many Grey seals on the point (they are all at Scrooby Sands) but what were there made entertaining viewing. One in particular had one of those faces. A good haul of Red breasted Mergansers too.

A touch of Red Eye

Walking around the beautiful Island of Bryher in the Isles of Scilly last week we decided to leave early and return to the island of St Mary’s. It turned out to be a good decision as we chanced upon one of those birds that is the epitome of the Scilly Isles in October; the thing that drives every bird watcher that goes there to search every field corner and each sycamore tree. A Nearctic bird … a bird from America. On the 10th October this year that Nearctic visitor manifested itself in the form of a splendid Red-eyed Vireo.

Common Colours

Common Seals come in all sorts of colours. These two were on the beach among a whole host of Grey Seals the other week. One was what I would call normal the other was quite orange. It’s often thought the orange individuals originate from the Thames Estuary where there is a high proportion of these individuals. The colour is thought to be derived from iron staining.

The orange animal seemed to be covered in a larger than normal share of flies so I checked him over as best I could just to see if he had any injuries that might be attracting them. He seemed to be free of any sores or cuts. Maybe it was his brighter attire the flies preferred.

Beach Cutie

We were walking down the beach the other day and this little cutie popped up at the side of us. Grey Seals can be endearing as anything or as ugly as sin.

Nearctic

Wouldn’t mind finding one of these on our trip to Scillies this year. Nothing like a nearctic for getting the heart racing. American Redstart taken in Canada this year.
