Norfolk!

Well off to Norfolk today with Trish and Trevor.

The forecast wasn't good but the weather was better than expected.

We stopped for breaky at the excellent Deepdale cafe - thanks Trevor.

Trevor had a target bird and that was Corn Bunting, well Choseley Barns it was then....



There were also lots of Yellowhammers, Skylarks and Red Legged Partridges.

And so to Titchwell.

We started off with Water Rail and then ran into a Spotted Redshank.


Lots of waders including Redshank, Ruff, Dunlin, Lapwing, Black Tailed Godwit and Avocets...


I do like the Pintails









Along the walk to the beach we saw Marsh Harrier, Smew, Curlew, Little Egret, Reed Bunting and Stonechat.

On the beach were a Grey Plover and Sanderling....





Bar-Tailed Godwit


See a Bar Tail!!


The Spotted Redshank again


Brent Goose


Didn't see the Arctic Redpoll but did see Lesser (below), Mealy and Siskin.


Oh and a few of these!!






Then onto lunch at the Jolly Sailors Brancaster Staithe. Trish and Trev had huge bowls of Mussels I had the burger!

Then onto Sculthorpe Moor. Lots of Siskins and Redpolls, alas no Willow or Marsh Tit or Brambling but we found Trev a Bullfinch.

Long Tailed Tit



A good day thanks to Trish for driving and putting up with Trev and my sense of humour :)

Glad the weather forecast was not accurate for you! I like Pintails too and I like your photos of them. The Corn Buntings have come out very well as well!Spotted Redshank looks in fine fettle.

Looks like the three of you had a great day. Wonderful pictures once again. I'm always amused at your Robins. They have such character in their faces.
