Titchwell RSPB - Northern Harrier!
Spent the morning in King's Lynn whilst waiting for my car to be MOT'd - walked along the quayside and saw a diver species, but didn't have my bins with me. 4 turnstones flew past!
Bad news - after all the work I had done on the car, it FAILED!!!! On emissions, 'Suspension component mounting corroded', 'sub frame seriously weakened' - BLOODY CARS!!!!
Went home, sulked and fell asleep in the chair.
Arrived late afternoon for a walk. Someone had seen the Northern Harrier at Titchwell this afternoon - it carried on west towards Thornham - I didn't see it, too late. The water was completely frozen over at Titchwell and because of this, there were very few birds - several pintail, teal, wigeon and shelduck. Pied Wagtails were flitting about on the ice just below the path. Put the wide angle lens on the camera and took some sunset pictures. Left Titchwell and picked up fish 'n' chips from Hunstanton and ate them back at home whilst watching 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
