Happisburgh 'sea front', 21/11/09

Not much to report I'm afraid. The winds, although from the 'wrong' direction, appeared to have pushed a few Gannets closer to the cliffs allowing good scope views. A good mix of Gulls littered the sea, and I don't mind admitting a few just went down as 'large Gull' rather than a species! 3 Turnstone were the highlight, working the tide and the wooden defences for food.
A skein of around 60 Pink Footed Geese flew West, and a singleton struggled against the wind 15 minutes later with some catching up to do.
A tit flock adjacent to the beach car park was grilled for any late suprises, none were forthcoming despite nice views of the common Tit species together.
Why I didn't stop at Wroxham Broad on the way home I'll never know, but one of the 2 Ducks that
gave me the run around last winter has returned- The Ring Necked. Here we go again.
