New beginnings

We have now moved up to Norfolk to enjoy our retirement, Welney is our nearest reserve (15 minutes) and  Lakenheath fen and Weeting heath (25 minutes) are also close by and we can be on the North Norfolk coast in 40 minutes. Lincolnshire reserves are reachable in under one hour too so our base is ideal.
So bring on the new year and we look forward to starting a Norfolk list!

Iceland gull

This is the bird that has been in Kings Lynn for a few weeks, luckily it is very confiding.
I put two images on as they appear to be two different birds colouration wise, it is purely the light hitting them from different angles.

Long tailed tit

Taken from a hide at Lackford lakes in Suffolk, it was one of three adults coming back at ten minute intervals to feed a hungry brood somewhere in front of the hide, delightful little birds

Wood mouse

This little character has been mopping up under our feeders for some time now and it has become completely at ease when we walk around the garden. I lay down four feet away from it and the mouse calmly watched me, even the click of the camera did not disturb it, great stuff!


It is good to get back to blogging, I am now fit and well again and able to use my camera again. A few years ago I planted the alder tree in our garden that this goldfinch is busy feeding from. This image makes the effort well worthwhile.
