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....
See a Bar Tail!!
The Spotted Redshank again
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 :)
