Second Week Of Our Norfolk Trip

The weather was much better for us our second week here, with the main highlights being finding the Shore Lark for ourselves twice (after two previous attempts) with the usual " you should have been here ten minutes ago from people who had just seen it fly off!! the first sighting was very brief and I did not manage very good shots, the second we had to have one of the worst days for wind, we had to battle against a constant sand storm on Titchwell Beach, as you can imagine the sand got everywhere, I have heard that women pay a fortune to have their faces sand blasted in this way and here I was getting it for free!! and also having a glorious Male Snow Bunting to ourselves for a good hour and a half on an incredible stretch of Beach, you have to picture this for yourselves we venture out and can see for miles both ways, to the left is Hunstanton and to the right is Holme and the O. H. says okay lets turn right and head for Holme, within a few hundred yards he almost tripped over the little fellow, right in front of us, of all the places he could have been on that Beach, Go Figure!! Just to show how accommodating he was I have put in a photo of me with him in shot. The final day gave me another highlight and another first for me and that was finding these Yellowhammers.
