iPhone photo of the Iceland Gull – Cley
Monday we were at Cley – highlights included the 1st winter Iceland Gull on Simmond’s Scrape, Black Brant on the Eye field, 50+ Snow Bunting along the shingle ridge and Great Northern Diver off-shore. Yesterday we had a work-party at Sustead Common and Spurrell’s Wood, where we made a start on building the bird screen and tackled a couple of the over-grown Hazel coppice. I did manage to get into Felbrigg late yesterday but it was too dark and cold for there to be much about – certainly no sign of any Hawfinch at The Orangery. Today the entire time has been spent wrestling with internet / computer problems and creating a slide presentation for the Winter Birds Workshop, at Cley on Saturday. I hope to get out tomorrow..
