A trip to Norfolk starting at Snettisham to look for the Pallid Harrier. Unfortunately I did not see it although it had been seen before I got there and then after I left.  The weather had deteriorated whilst I was there getting much windier and colder as the day progressed. I then went to Thornham Harbour where there was a flock of Twite including some that were colour ringed and then Titchwell RSPB.

Today started with a lovely sunrise ( The picture was taken from the window of our room in the Lochmaddy Hotel).  The weather was sunny all day although still quite cold. We went back to Balranald RSPB to see the Harlequin Duck again. There are pictures of Twite, Corn Bunting and Rock Dove all of which are quite common birds around Balranald. We got the 4pm boat back to Skye and stayed in the Uig Hotel for the night.
