Norfolk holiday Pt 2, Day 2 Saturday

Very much a stay local day, and with the views we had, it wouldn't be right not to, so Cromer, and Lifeboat Day, but the weather didn’t really want to play fair for the lifeboat launch.

Starting with a decent sunrise

I think this is a [edited from shag] on the post, ID conf would be appreciated, because it could have been a cormorant.

Corrected to Cormorant, many thanks to "seymouraves" Thumbsup

Looking west along the coast towards East Runton, where I stayed as a child back in the sixties.

There were lots of starlings, and this looks like a discarded starling egg shell

I saw my first Northern Fulmar

Plus many others in the garden, as per photos and list

House Sparrow

Wood Pigeons

"Right lads, line up, nice straight line while we do this search...."

Pied Wagtail

An antisocial Mr Blackbird. TBF, there is a nice picnic area just the other side of that fence, so there may have been a potential food opportunity
