Following a most hectic late Autumn which saw me launch a new business www.onestopnature.co.uk on the North Norfolk Coast, after resigning from In Focus (after 21 years! ), selling the house to have it fall through one hour before exchange of contracts, and with Sam out of action from effectively what was a broken ankle/leg twice, I have made it out finally, to do some bird spotting.
Actually that's a bit of a fib as I twitched the Western Sandpiper at Cley a few weeks ago and also managed to seen a Green-winged Teal and a Green-winged Teal Hybrid.
But this morning it was off to West Acre Scrape and there were two Snipe in front of the hide and a distant Little Egret. Having almost forgotten how to use a camera I was all over the place with wrong settings ago go. Eventually I did manage a shot on some reasonable settings.
So that'll be it till New Year's day - If you are passing Burnham Deepdale do please pop into my new shop for a browse.... binoculars, telescopes, microscopes, magnifiers, astroscopes, trap cameras, night vision, books, bird feeders and food, insect habitats, moth traps, bat detecters and loads more...........
