Long Ole Nights

22nd November 2017
Good evening and hope you are all well. So I have just arrived home from watching the Starlings come in to roost at Strumpshaw Fen. I reckon there were around 15000 came in and they did put on a small show which was great to watch. There were a few raptors around but I never saw any successful catch attempts by any. If you are about this way its well worth a visit. The Nth Norfolk coast is showing some great birds with some Shore larks around Happisburgh and quite a few Snow Buntings Cley way.
The hide at the mo is really good for Jays and the woodpeckers are showing well too. I now have also seemed to have acquired a Heron who pretty much sits on my buzzard area all day. He picks up the carcasses and eats them. Very comical to watch. The Buzzards seem to tolerate it too as they sometimes feed together. Brendon saw a Redpoll last week so hopefully a few will start to come in. Once it gets cooler I would expect to see a Brambling or two coming in. Its been a bit quiet on my photography at the mo with only a couple of trips out. I did spend a late afternoon at Cantley doing some slow shutter landscapes which I do now and again. I will leave you with one. Until next time. Mark.
