A week away in Norfolk.................................................................... via Birdfair

We are off for a well earned holiday to Norfolk on Saturday... stopping off to visit Birdfair 2013 on the way.

Fingers crossed the weather is similar to my last visit in 2011... the forecast is for showers.
I have a hotel booked in Peterborough for Saturday night then it's a case of just following our noses for the rest of the week. 

Norfolk has big skies... this was taken on my last visit in 2008.
The tent is in the car but we are more likely to be finding a bed and breakfast for a bit of comfort.

The only plans are to visit a few bird reserves and of course a boat trip to Blakeney Point to see the seals.
The weather will decide the rest... time spent just sunbathing on a beach would be nice.

The bird feeders are topped up but will be empty in a couple of days knowing this lot.

I have loads of House Sparrows at the moment...

... between them the Sparrows, Robins, Blue and Great Tits are making short work of the fatballs.

I will be back in about a week.
