After the Lord Mayor's Parade

After hundreds of Little Auks passing the Norfolk coast over the past few days it was a return to as you were on this bright and crisp Saturday morning. At my coastal patch near Sheringham the only species moving in any real numbers were Starling (7,500 by midday), and just a handful of Brent geese and Common Scoter. Two seperate Little Egret did move west mid morning and a single Little Auk was floating in the surf before flying down the beach. As usual the ever present Stonechats were in residence.

Back in Aylmerton the Winter Barley behind our garden currently holds good numbers of Lapwing (125) and Golden Plover (c 200).
