Yarmouth and Brook

Yarmouth is one of our favourite places to visit for birds, and it was the most glorious day. The weather has been perfect for this visit, and we saw a few new birds to tick off in the logbook. A Great Crested Grebe was in front of us, looking streamlined in its non-breeding plumage. Further along, we saw a cormorant sitting with some gulls on a rocky outcrop. Three or four Little Egrets were probing in the grasses on the edge of the water, and a large wader (possibly a Godwit? It was too big for a ‘shank’) sat unhelpfully concealing all identifying features apart from the long beak.

There is a beautiful mill, and a lovely walk around the edge of the estuary.

After tea at Chessell pottery, we visited Brook Bay as the tide was out. I love it there – I studied a Geology degree with the OU a few years ago and I loved all the rocks and fossils. There were a few rockpools too…bliss. I love patterns too; the ripples and channels in the sand.
