Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them

Norfolk Autumn Sunshine

Cley NWT North Scrape 1
Cley Marshes NWT Reserve, Norfolk

We arrived in Hunstanton, Norfolk early afternoon and met up with Malcolm, Peter and Sarah-Jane and were soon out birding. The weather was perfect, warm sunshine and flat calm. At Thornham we were soon watching lots of waders including Greenshank, Bar-tailed Godwit and Golden Plover, a Marsh Harrier drifted over.

Over at Walsey Hills NOA, east of Cley-next-the-Sea we tracked down the female Red-backed Shrike and soaked up wonderful views as she gabbed insects and down them in one. What a wonderful bird!

A walk down the east bank at Cley gave us lovely views of a pair of Bearded Tits and lots more waders. Offshore Gannets and Common Scoter were added to our fast growing day list.

Back at Walsey Hills a Yellow-browed Warbler was in the trees by the pool but very elusive!

On Cley reserve we watched masses of birds from the hides and enjoyed close views of many species. Ruff, Black-tailed Godwit and Common Snipe were amongst the waders here.

Heading back west we stopped near Holkham over-looking the fresh marsh and enjoyed lovely views of Pink-footed Geese, Golden Plover, Grey Partridges and a Barn Owl, superb birding.

We rounded the day off with a lovely meal in Thornham, top day!
