New Year birding

Due to family affairs I was on my way to Norfolk on New years eve,Kings Lynn was our destination,the light was poor,as was the following morning,we drove to Titchwell and there was a good variety of birds on show,in particular Marsh harrier ,Hen Harrier and just to add confusion a Northern harrier,this  American sub species was similar but carried a dragging leg.
Large skeins of geese notably Pinkfoot,Grey lag and of course the ubiqutous Brent,a few Avocets obliged,moving on we drove towards Burnham Norton where prior to the water mill a Barn owl graced the flooded meadows,we had lunch at the Dun Cow where on the adjacent marsh another Barn owl obliged.
Finally Cley next the sea provided little in the fading light.
The following morning I walked The Peter Scott Way along the river Nene noting some tame Barnacle geese more Brents and another splendid Hen harrier cruised the salt marsh.
