Next I nipped to Ness Point, Lowestoft where I failed dismally to find any Purple Sandpipers despite walking miles north in search. A couple of confiding Sanderlings were some recompense and several Kittiwakes were offshore.
2014 begins, Pakefield/Lowestoft, 2 January 2014
In between doing other things today I popped in to Pakefield and down to the beach to try to photograph the flock of Snow Buntings. There were so many dog walkers and teenagers on the beach the flock of c60 birds were constantly being spooked and ranging up and down a big area of beach. With a little patience at what seemed like their favourite spot I managed a shot or 2 and while waiting picked out an adult and then 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull at the north end of the beach.
