Peregrine, roosting on Cromer church – blending in well with the knapped flint of the tower
We had a couple of hours free yesterday morning so took a drive round, collecting a few NENBC year ticks which I’d missed on New Year’s Day. A nice group of Golden Plover at Bodham was followed by the inland flock of Ruff at the pig farm, south of Edgefield. They are tricky to see without a telescope, but a good NENBC find by Phil B in the first place! I counted 37 but I may have missed a few. Too distant to even attempt a photo. We finished up at Cromer church tower to look for the roosting Peregrine – which we found above the East window. In the afternoon I took a walk in the park. Very little change from recent visits – a Grey Wagtail over the lake and then later on the wet meadow at Paul’s Common was the best bird.
