North Norfolk - Skylark, Meadow Pipit and Swallows

It was a lovely day for walking around the reserve at Cley, made all the better by the sound of larks and pipits singing. Most of the time the birds were high in the sky singing. However, they came to land from time to time presenting brief opportunities for photography.

A pair of Skylark landed on the grass nearby - they were far too busy to notice me!

and a Meadow Pipit took time to rest on a nearby fence post.

There are a series of three hides at Cley that are beside one another, allowing different views over a series of pools and lagoons. One of the more unexpected close in visitors to these hides was the Swallow. One bird in particular regularly came and sat on the fence right outside the window to the hide.
