Hunstanton to Heacham

A short stroll to Heacham and back hoping to beat the forecast for heavy rain.
The weather was very kind for the most part with only the odd spit of rain.
As we arrived back in Hunstanton so did the rain. 
It turned very wet for the next ...........

Terns were calling out to sea, but not venturing near enough to get a decent photo.

The pebbled area on the beach held a group of Turnstone huddled together, some asleep by the looks of it.

Also on the pebbles, Ringed Plover in 3 or 4 groups of 2 and 3 birds.

Their plumage matching that of the pebbles making them nearly invisible, until they moved.

The ubiquitous Herring Gulls were here in various guises, some looking extremely petty.

Lots of Black Headed Gulls included just one Juv.

10 or so Cormorant were diving and Oystercatcher were in good numbers, possibly as many as 200.

A few Meadow Pipits about.

On further inspection of my photos, 4 Great Crested Grebe morphed from one of my Cormorant pics.

A really nice surprise was a Little Egret feeding on the beach.

No doubt there would be lots more down the coast at Snettisham but we could not fit a visit to Snettisham this time around.

Terns very distant - rubbish photo.
