A Weekend in Norfolk - on the way home.

Woke early and had a walk around the grounds where we were staying.  The house was beautiful and we felt as though we were at a National Trust property.

The view from the windows was across the field and immediately outside the house were four cows..

Early morning in Bagthorpe.. the house was wonderful... just like staying in a stately home :)

After an excellent brekkie we headed off to meet Corinna, Cheryl and Trev at WWT Welney whee the highlight of the day was a :Pectoral Sandpiper

and then sadly, after some lunch we headed off for home.

Thanks all, for a great weekend.

A weekend in Norfolk

Woke up a silly o'clock so at 4.00 a.m. we decided to set off for the weekend in Norfolk.

We were meeting some friends at 9.00 a.m. for breakfast so we parked up and then wandered down to the marshes.

The sun was just coming up and the sky was clear of any cloud.  It was quite special to see the different colours as the sun rose and we stood watching hundreds of pink-footed goose in large skeins coming in - amazing just to stand and stare.

Saw a flock of about 20 Golden Plovers flew over.. looking really golden in the rising sun.

And from there back to Deepdale Cafe ... friends arrived, breakfast was ordered, eaten and thoroughly enjoyed.

and then to the Cafe... Trev and Corinna met for the first time

Corinna, Di and Keith

after a very filling breakfast, on to Titchwell Nature Reserve

Pete and Corinna

and just before leaving, a Brambling arrived on the feeder
(record shot only!!)
 Di, Keith and Dawn had to travel back later, but Pete, Trev, Corinna, Cheryl and I all went to Briarfields for an excellent meal.

Scallops to start following by Gressingham Duck and a chocolate torte..... food to die for!!

An excellent first day......

 and tomorrow......
