Hello from Norfolk

Hello Everbody,
Getting back into birding after a lay-off. After 11 years living in the present house (new build) am at long last getting birds into the garden and onto the birdtable & feeders. A dormant interest is aroused and I've now rejoined the NWT.

Have to agree Tim. Almost my spiritual home as I seem to be there almost at least once a month.

A warm welcome to you Dave. You are certainly in one of the best areas to help rekindle your interest in birds.

I have to echo Tim! If it's a bird, you'll see it in Norfolk eventually! Not in Dereham, however! LOL!

LOL! I had my suspicions about whether M. Clouseau was as Gallic as he made out... and DB was my number one suspect. C'est toi, non?

If any body else thinks Norfolk's flat I suggest you come here on a push-bike and then see how flat you think it is!

I don't think you have explored too much of Norfolk then. Flat it certainly isn't.

Listen buster,the mother in law is one of 12,one brother alone has ten children,my wife has (approaching) 100 cousins,I have been visiting for 35 years,not ALL obviously,it's a huge county.Do't tell me it isn't because it was confirmed by a Geography lecturer at Birmingham Un.,,coming from Cambridge across ending up around Yarmouth it is,maybe not overall.I do like the people/area very much even though a "broad" Norfolk accent was tricky initially !

Norfolk's flat. Not as flat as Lincolnshire, but flat! The highest point is a teensy bump near Cromer called Roman Camp. It's 335 feet high. Less than Norwich Cathedral. It's flat, alright!
