When I say we drove quickly, we went quickly to west Lynn and then jumped on the ferry across the Great River Ouse to Kings Lynn town centre. It was blowing hard and the tide was running out strongly - the boatman took us in on the lee of the steep steps but the wind still nearly swept us off our feet. Coming back the tide was well out and there were white caps on the river! Bit too adventurous!
The weather continued awful all afternoon so after a bit of a rest I spent an hour repairing my husband's thick work trousers by forming new hems. Should last another year or so now!
Didn't get a picture of the rare bird, Pallid Harrier, this morning but it was more active walking around the orchard area rather than just sitting on the fence.
