North Norfolk

I spent last weekend up north Norfolk with my wife to celebrate 25 years being together. So, it wasn't full on birding obviously but a mixture of birding, eating out and enjoying some of great pubs on offer - Wiverton Belle and the Dun Cow being our favourite two.

Started at Holkham on Friday afternoon with 3 Great White Egret, Red Kite, Marsh Harriers, 10 Grey Partridges and good numbers of Pink footed Geese but failed to find anything decent amongst the tit flocks sadly. Then it was a quick bite to eat at the Victoria and then onto Walsey Hills for the Yellow Browed Warbler. We heard it several times but in the fading light failed to see it.

Saturday was a wash out bird wise, so it only left Sunday morning to find my own stuff  and that was a bit disappointing considering the time of year. Good numbers of common birds but nothing decent.  However I did get to see the YBW briefly on the way home at Walsey Hills.
