Norfolk

A nice day in Norfolk. Todd’s Canada Goose and several Bean Geese seen with 1000’s of Pinkfeet near Docking. Lots of Velvet Scoter and Long-tailed Ducks at Titchwell and plenty of waders on a lovely sunny but cold day.

Dusky Thrush

Up early on Saturday for a trip to Beeley a nice little village on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire to see a  Dusky Thrush. As the villagers did not want lots of people parking in the village they had set up a free one-way shuttle bus from the Carlton Lees carpark about a mile away. They also supplied tea/coffee and bacon and sausage baps.
