Norfolk Birding

An excellent days birding in Norfolk with Brendan G and Dave J.

First stop was Thornham Marshes; Northern Harrier, Hen Harrier, Barn Owl, Red Breasted Merganser and Common Scoter the best birds seen. We had only been at Thornham for 5 minutes when the Northern Harrier showed really well, at first it was joined by a Hen Harrier but this flew off towards Titchwell. Not a bad start to the day!

Next stop, RSPB Titchwell; Highlights here were; Marsh Harrier, Black and Bar Tailed Godwit, Pintail, Eider, Slavonian Grebe, Velvet Scoter, Avocet, Grey Plover, Knot, Sanderling, Dunlin, Ruff, Spotted Redshank, Turnstone, Curlew, Twite, Merlin.

Finally, Burnham Overy; 2 Rough Legged Buzzard showing well with Marsh Harrier in close attendance, Brent Goose, Pink Footed Goose, Ringed Plover.

Not a bad day!!!!
