It has been a quiet few days since I last posted my diaries. On the whole the weather has been kind for January; that was until this morning when there were areas of black ice on the roads making it slippery for both vehicles and pedestrians. All day the sun has fought to burn its way through the mists that was until about 3 p.m. when it finally gave up the battle and the village sank into grey murk.

Thursday 30th January 2014 - Covers on the Drains, Eagle Owl at Wroxham and Feeling Cold

The earth continues to wash away the soil from the area repaired under the zigzag but, on the plus side, new concrete covers have been placed over the land drains. The drains can now no longer fill with the matter from the slumping cliffs. There is little water currently flowing down an open stream on the cliff below the Sea Marge; it seems to have diverted slightly further west and is draining through a new course, down to the promenade. Of course, our cliffs are continually changing and are of particular importance for the natural habitats they provide. A report on DEFRA’s website makes interesting reading, as well as posing the question; why have access paths down to the beach been allowed to be cut or developed?
