View over Weybourne

H and I did a walk on Kelling Heath this morning. I know I've blipped this view over Weybourne several times before, but it did look lovely this morning with the cloudless sky. I wasn't feeling well today, I often feel a bit out of sorts when there's a sudden change in the weather, like we've had this week. Today it was gloriously sunny again and the temperature reached an amazing 16C. Lots of bird activity around and about and we saw a female Dartford Warbler with nesting material and a Linnet, not on camera unfortunately. I enjoyed watching Everybody's Talking About Jamie on Netflix this afternoon. 

Day 724 / Day 15 of no Legal Covid Requirements in England (for my record only)
The draft terms of reference have been published for the public inquiry into the Govt's handling of the pandemic. Included are the UK's preparedness, the public health response including the use of lockdowns and non-pharmaceutical interventions, the health and care sector response including the procurement of PPE and other equipment. and the economic response including the support for business and jobs. It looks to have a very wide remit, full ToR can be found at

The latest REACT study from 8th Feb to 1st Mar showed a reduction of cases in Eng to 1 in 35, but that's the 2nd highest in their studies. At 21/2 it was estimated that 47.2% of cases were the more transmissible AB.2 'stealth variant' of Omicron which is still under investigation. Cases were flat or possibly rising in those over 55. The Govt funding of the ZOE Covid Study will end in a few weeks, but they hope to find alternative funding. The SAGE committee (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) has been 'stood down', but will regroup if needed.
