Digiscoped with Jane’s iPhone – adult White-fronted Goose, Letheringsett

It drizzled most of the morning at Cley yesterday, backed by a moderate south-westerly breeze. However, despite the weather, the birding was pretty good – with quality making up for quantity. Highlights included: two Peregrines over the reserve at lunchtime – what looked like a distinctly buff / brown 1st winter bird and an adult male? (still can’t clinch  these as the Cromer church birds yet), the flock of 40+ Snow Bunting, 1st winter Glaucous Gull, a pale-looking Barn Owl and four Barnacle Geese in with the Brent flock. On the way home we called in at Letheringsett, where the grazing Greylag Goose flock contained at least six White-fronted Geese – a mix of adults and juveniles. They were just inside the NENBC area boundary! All-in-all, a pretty good day’s birding.
