YARE VALLEY: Storks!

28th April 2012

Most of Saturday was not great.  I spent the majority of the day waiting in a near-empty house for an engineer to come out (he never appeared), finally leaving and watching Norwich City play Liverpool, losing 3-0.  Once the match was over Cathy kindly suggested we go and look for two White Storks that had been found near Acle earlier in the day. We found Damgate Lane easily enough, and scanning from just over the bridge I managed to pick out one of the Storks behind some cattle.  It was then obscured as a cow walked in front of it, but after a while the cows moved off to the left, leaving the two White Storks standing next to each other on the marshes in the pouring rain, ensuring that the day ended on a positive note.
