Single Snow

Up with the Lark or should I say Bunting, this morning. There was sadly no sign of the Little Auk on the sea off Gunton Warren, although a nice adult Kittiwake perched on the end of the groyne. On Links Rd car park, Herring Gull, 2 Common Gulls and about 20 Black- headed Gulls were around the puddles. On the North Denes a tall clump of Mushrooms/ Toadstools were seen near the car park.
As I was walking back to the car park, a serving member of the Norfolk Rarities committee was trying to stalk something (not very successfully!) along the northern edge of the car park and from within 30 yards he flushed a single very white, probably male Snow Bunting which flew away north- east over the edge of the car park and out of sight over the eastern end of Links Road.
Very little at Ness Point this afternoon save for an obliging Herring Gull on the sea defence rocks south of the compass. 14 Turnstones were on the edge of Hamilton Dock too.

WARNING; NESS POINT THE AREA BETWEEN THE FLOOD BARRIER NEAR THE MOST EASTERLY POINT AND THE SEAWALL BY BIRD'S EYE IS NOW CLOSED FOR REPAIR WORK TO THE WALL.
SO BOTH NESS POINT AND WALBERSWICK HOIST COVERT TRAIL ARE CLOSED.
