1st March

Well, what a difference two weeks can make to the English weather! Take a look at the photo of today and a reminder of how cold it was a few weeks ago ....

A walk along the sunny beach at Wells through to Holkham produced the following birds:
1 bright 'yellow faced' Shore Lark (three seen by other birders earlier)
10+ Rock Pipits and a few Meadow Pipits
10+ G C Grebes and a Razorbill offshore
2-3 Marsh Harriers
2 Grey Partridge
2 Crossbills flew over heading West along the Pines

Yesterday at Strumpshaw and Buckenham - a female Hen Harrier was the only year tick of note.

Not long before the first Spring migrants start arriving
