Red-throated Diver, North Norfolk, 3/11/2012

Forecast :  Rain all day in the South East !
Norfolk has the best chance of a bit of fair weather.

We arrived at Salthouse, Norfolk at about 09.00 hours to blue sky and pleasant conditions

At sea, Gannet, passing and feeding close in
Red-throated Diver, drifting by close in feeding, and more further out

Snow Bunting, 50 +  very flighty,
Redshank, Meadow Pipit 
Common, Black-headed and Herring Gull

Just beginning to enjoy the day ! when at 10.30 hours,
The weather changed to cloud and then intermittent rain, grey and dull !

We moved on stopping at Cley, a Peregrine over and Marsh Harrier quartering, a very brief visit to the closest hide, everything very distant, to be fair, most of our stay was in the Cafe, (Mick likes the cakes)

We again move on arriving at Titchwell about 15.00 hours, here the weather brightened, a walk out onto the beach, here again everything distant, photo opportunities 'NILL'
