NORTH NORFOLK: Cley & Natural Surroundings

14th May 2011

A quick stop at Cley in the morning to look over a productive pool on the marshes revealed the Lesser Yellowlegs, 2 Wood Sandpipers, a male Garganey (possibly a pair, a small female duck was obscurred by rushes) and a green neck-collared Greylag Goose. After a quick chat with Stu and Paul at the visitors centre, a birder came up to ask Paul & I if we'd seen the Red Kite flying behind us. We hadn't and it had gone, thank goodness it wasn't anything rarer. We went to the Cafe in the Woods at Natural Surroundings for lunch. Its a lovely little place, although they could do with a few more options on the menu - basically its a sandwich or soup. We watched a Nuthatch on the feeders outside the cafe before going for a quick walk around the grounds.
