“Have you ever seen a black seagull before?” Mark asked, casually.
The three of us were sat on a wall overlooking the beach at Cromer.
“No, I don’t think so,” I responded. “Are you sure it wasn’t a crow?”
“No, it’s bigger than a crow. Look.”
He pointed down to the beach and there it was. I was so excited that, even though we had just puffed our way up a million steps, I was off at a jog back down to get a closer look.
My handy bird field guide identified it as a cormorant. My first one.
We went to Cromer during our mini-break where we were glamping in the woods about five miles away. I’ve written a post about our adventure for later this week, if you’re interested. It was such fun.
Wishing you a great week.
