The last week in Norfolk

The last week was spent in Norfolk with our grandson.
Birding was limited with days out tailored more to the little one with a trip to Hunstanton Sea life Aquarium his highlight. Watching the lights get turned on at Holt was an unexpected high point too.

On the birding front I managed to to connect with the King Eider at Sheringham on a couple of occasions. I got lucky when a Pallid Swift was found whilst I was in Cromer shopping so right time right place for a Lifer. A trip to Horsey to show the guys the Seal pups gave me the chance to connect with the wintering Rough-legged Buzzard and a stop off at Burwell on the way home rewarded me with great views of no fewer than eight Short-eared Owls.
