This wildlife film shows the wildlife that can be found along the North Norfolk Coast of the UK during the winter. From Seals to migrating waders, salt marshes to shingle dunes, we are able to see many species and beautiful sights in this special part of Norfolk — lots of amazing and interesting bird behavior!

About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    That was enjoyable – Jack appreciated the snow buntings.
    It seems relevant to point out that there will be a science blogging conference up there next winter.

    When I was a kid we used to go on holiday to the Norfolk Broads at Easter, (mostly because it was cheaper than the summer). We’d hire a cabin cruiser and potter around for a fortnight.
    There was always lots of different wildlife to see. Plenty of waterfowl, of course: I particularly liked watching the diving birds, like grebes. The occasional seal would find its way into the river system. Back then there were coypu – interesting to see, if not entirely desirable – and sometimes water voles.
    Plenty of terns and gulls. It was fun to throw bits of bread up into the air and watch the terns catch it on the wing.
    Easter was a great time to visit, with lots of young birds to see and all the flowers starting to bloom. There were little islands covered with small daffodils which you could only reach by boat. Some of the broads were quite shallow, so you couldn’t take the cabin cruiser in but we usually had a sailing dinghy too, so we could explore a bit. There were some beautiful isolated spots: very peaceful. All very Swallows and Amazons. 🙂
