Birding day out in Norfolk 30/03/2012 by Robert Wilson HEADING_TITLE

I setoff for a days birding and photography with Carl and Natalie wright from Essex.

We had arranged to meet at the NWT carpark at cley next to sea and started are days birding at Salthouse. The wintering Snow Buntings had departed early so there was very little to see in carpark area. The weather was also quite cloudy with very dull lighting conditions. We had a brief discussion on settings and then suggested that the should beusing at least 400 ISO.

We walked west to next set of pools with the only notable bird being a single Redshank which soon departed. There was a scattering of Linnet and Meadow Pipit with several of the later doing their parachute song flight. There was no sign of any Wheatears which  had been reported to us by fellow birders. The odd Skylark could be heard overhead which was a pleasant reminder of spring.

I suggested we check the bushs east of salthouse where we found a male and female Stonechat which proved to be quite flighty not allowing any photographic oppurtunties. We headed back to the car and Carl manged to get close views and photographs of a Meadow Pipit sitting on top of a fence post.

We headed to Kelling heath with the hope of seeing Adders and various heathland birds but when we arrived the weather was very dull and cloudy. We headed to the area where the adders are fairly easy to see and to my surprise we had one adder which quickly moved away into cover. It was quite funny as Natalie jumped back when we encountered the Adder
