I'm in Norfolk for a week, and nothing happened on the storm front, I hope I don't sound disappointed, i'm not, but it just didn't happen. We had a heavy downfall about 11am monday and a little wind but that was it, however, I did go to Lynford Aboretum in the afternoon and there was half a tree down near the carpark. Anyway, I stayed there watching the Larches behind the volunteers shed and sure enough the Crossbills turned up, about 20 of them, and there was some barred amongst them. Other birds I saw there were, Siskins, the usual Tits including Marsh and Coal, and lots of noise from the Nuthatches. On to Santon Downham for an hour to notice that there were a number of Bramblings and Redwings feeding around. Can't do much today as Bonnie and Claire have gone for one of their last christmas presents, a day at a Spa (not the food shop) in Kings Lynn, while I look after the kids, (it's Quieter). But I shall be out tomorrow, (somewhere).
