Sunday 14th September 2014

    Today, was not quite as bright and sunny, but still not too bad. Actually it did brighten up later!!!

   The morning was spent looking for the Caspian Gulls again, but again there was no sign, even though one had been reported earlier. Best i could manage was the yellow-legged Gull again, but the only shots of anything i got were Herring and Lesser Black-backed Gulls...

   A drive to Winterton Dunes this afternoon, took a lot longer than i remember, and was a bit of a waste of time. There was a report of an Olive-backed Pipit there, but it was never seen again, as far as i know. I had a fair old walk about (for someone with a dodgy knee anyway), but the only thing i saw of any note, was a Grayling butterfly, and even that was really you can see below, also NOT the most photogenic of locations either......

    Reminded me of an old Monty Python sketch....

    Whats Brown and sounds like a bell?


    A return to Cromer, to see if the incoming tide would produce the Caspian Gulls! No sign again, but at least i did manage some photos of the Yellow-legged Gull this time....

   All in all, not what i was hoping for, especially from Norfolk, but still a decent weekend.
