Mr. White

So after the fruitless weekend I woke up to a crisp, sunny morning and decided I had to get out. Met up with Phil and Will near Great Bircham where the Snow Goose had been present for the last few days. Only few geese there this morning, but quite many birds knocking about there.
After a quick bite at Titchwell we got the news that the goose is at Holkham, so headed over there. It showed well along Lady Anne's Drive among the large pinky flock there - good scope views but really too distant for proper photography. Other than that some barnacles.

Large crop

I had to return to Norwich early, but we had time to quickly check around Burnham Overy, where we saw the Rough-legged Buzzard hunting in the distance - again too distant for photography but decent scope views:

Another large crop...

On the way back home we had a quick at Salthouse. Very few brents around, but about 30 Snow Buntings and 10 Twite were nice though mobile in the freezing wind.
Nice, typical N Norfolk winter day. Thanks to Phil and Will for the company.
