Introduction I was born in Norfolk and have been birding all my life and combine this with my passion for photography. My father Peter Clarke founded the Norfolk Ornithologists' Association in 1962 and was Warden at Holme Bird Observatory for over 33 years. My father wrote 'Nature Notes' for the Lynn News from 1979-2012 and has written several natural history publications including (along with my mother Margaret) "Where to Watch Birds in East Anglia". Very sadly my father passed away, aged 90 years on 23rd February 2017. I have two sisters, Lucy and Vivien. I have seen several MEGAS in Norfolk inc: Ivory Gull, Fan-tailed Warbler, Thrush Nightingale, Pine Bunting, Stilt Sandpiper, White Crowned Sparrow, Dark Eyed Junco, Penduline Tit, Trumpeter Finch, Bee-eater, Radde's Warbler, Little Bittern, Pacific & American Golden Plovers, Collard & Black-winged Pratincole, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Black-headed Bunting, Alder Flycatcher, Collared Flycatcher, Great Snipe, Citril Finch to name but a few! I work as a Senior Therapy Assistant, helping to rehabilitate stroke patients.
