Walking amongst the ruins, I was especially pleased to spot a Buzzard alighting in a bare tree, and then it joined two more on the breeze. Other new birds for my historical sites list included Stock Dove, Pied Wagtail, Goldfinch and Collared Dove.
Of note driving from home to the north coast, 1 Red Kite near Lenwade, and 4 more Buzzard at various localities.
Moving onto Salthouse, we had lunch at Cookies Crabshack, the usual Crab salad going down a treat. I look forward to a Summer visit when we can sit out the front and admire the view across the marshes. With plenty of light in the day, we headed to Blakeney and whilst I didn't know quite where to look for the reported BNG and GNDs, we saw a smattering of the expected Waders, tonnes of Brents and bumped into my cousin Ben and Uncle Colin who were after the Lapland Buntings, which they got albeit in flight. We instead headed back to the car, and from Blakeney Guildhall I added Curlew, Redshank, Turnstone and Cormorant to the aforementioned 'historic' list.
Final stop of the day was Warham Greens, which was superb and offered us good views of 4 Hen Harriers, including 1 male. Walking back to the car as the Brents came over calling was, as always, magic.
