27/02/10 Happisburgh and East Ruston

A gap in the showers late afternoon convinced me a trip out would be far more productive than watching the rugby, good decision.
Headed to Happisburgh and walked the clifftop track which had become saturated and muddy. Not a great deal to report, bit of a Gull fest with Common and Black Headed loafing in the clifftop fields. Out to sea 3 distant Common Scoter were sadly the highlight, nowt on the beach. Decided not to push onto the lane and headed back, 4 Linnets providing a brief distraction.
Drove down to the paddocks at Whimpwell Green, better birds to be had there. Mistle Thrush fed alongside Fieldfare, couple of Redwing in trees and a Song Thrush nervously joined its 2 brutish cousins for a meal. Blackbirds zipped around, the light just beginning to fade now.
Finished the evening with a walk down Weaver's way at East Ruston. Fantastic views of a quartering Barn Owl were enjoyed amongst ideal habitat. 3 Grey Partridge were notable. Arriving back at the car a Woodcock flew overhead.
