Broad Sweep

Broad bordered Bee-Hawkmoths were around the Valerian the other week. We had three hovering around one plant all at once. So fast these things. We decided to give them honorary bird status!

Some of the Black tailed Godwits visiting Cley at the moment are just stunning.

choughs

In Wales a couple of weeks ago the Chough were dancing in the wind over the cliffs and sea. Love the playfulness of these corvids.

A Howl

Another shot of one of those amazing Short eared Owls that are gracing many of Norfolk’s marshes and dunes at the moment.

Towering Waders

I caught a flock of Grey Plover sweeping through the village last week. Those dark auxiliaries; the armpit feathers, are a dead giveaway for an otherwise quite bland winter plumage wader. Several flocks have been around the village for a week or two now. If they aren’t in the clifftop fields they will undoubtedly be down on the beach.

Arrivals

As we sat at the top of the beach waiting for cetaceans that never arrived this week, Tania and I were pleased to see some new arrivals.

Signposting the end of good weather Winter visitors are perhaps given a mixed welcome, but when they come still dressed in their summer garb they are a delight. Four Red-throated Divers, maybe fresh in from Scottish Lochs, were fishing just beyond the surf. How could I not get the camera out?

Card surprise

I found some photos the other day. I must admit I’d forgotten I’d taken them. Shot at the end of last year before lock-down. A beautiful Twite.

An early Christmas visitor from Lapland

We were watching a small group of Snow Buntings that were flitting around a field edge last week. They were completely ignoring dogs, kids and people walking the cliff top bank so were quite easy to observe. Arriving as quickly as it later disappeared was a single lonely Lapland Bunting among them. Always good to see these birds return each winter even in smaller numbers than they occurred in years passed.
