Birding

Friary Hills are a small area of scrub lying just outside the precinct wall of the ruined Carmelite Friary between Blakeney to the west and Cley to the east. A path leads to the hills from Blakeney's main car parking area east of the Blakeney hotel and bottom of Back lane.Once past the ornamental wildfowl enclosure visitors will need to go through a gate clearly signed 'Friary Hills National trust'.
An interesting site at any time of the year, but especially so during spring migration. Our own trip of 2012 produced views of common crane, whimbrel, bar-tailed godwit, ring ouzel (illustrated here), whinchat, yellow wagtail, redstart, and a host of commoner birds.The raised area has seating and gives excellent views over the marshes. Less watched than nearby Cley and during our previous visit we enjoyed the well twitched Collared Pratincole.

Many rarities including Woodchat shrike, red-backed shrike, Killdeer
