Friday 1st April 2016 - Swan on the Sea, Dumping, Sparrow and Clifftop Publishing

Earlier this week we saw an unusual site; a swan on the sea. We told two of our village bird watchers who walked down to have a look and identified it as a mute swan. Since then it has been spotted near Cromer Pier. You just never know what extraordinary wildlife you will see here in North Norfolk.

One thing we did not want to see yesterday and that was an amount of rubbish that has been dumped each side of the railway bridge on Madams Lane. A mix of bags and suitcases; I took photographs and sent these to our District Councillor, Angie Fitch-Tillett who informed us, as the rubbish is on private land, there is nothing the council can do about it. Today we went to Ivy Farm Caravan Park, which is owned by the Reynolds family. They also own land further inland and we wondered if they owned the old railway line too. We did not get a positive answer but were told they would look into it with a view to clearing the rubbish.
