After Cantley and Kelling, next stop on my Norfolk tour was Salthouse Beach where a flock of Snow Bunting had been reported. It was blowing a gale and there was no sign of the Buntings until, after a few minutes trudging around, a flock of pebbles spread their white wings and took off.
When they landed again their camouflage against the pebble beach was superb. More obliging were the Knot and Turnstone apparently feeding on breadcrumbs in the car park.
I was staying in Wells for the night so ended the day at Lady Anne's Drive, Holkham, with a few thousand Pink-footed Geese. They were feeding on the freshmarsh before heading off to the east in large flocks to roost.

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
