About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Norfolk Day 2 Friday 26th October.

Today started with a sea watch at Cley and dissappointingly not a lot moving but for Gannets and a couple of Bonxies and Kittiwakes. With the White Rumped Sandpiper reported still to be on the reserve we headed for the hide overlooking Pats Pool. A Curlew Sandpiper was showing also a couple of Ruff and after a short while the Sandpiper put in an appearance on the far bank, gradually came closer which gave good scope views and comparison of size against Dunlin and Lapwing.

While watching the Sandpiper a couple of Beardies put in an appearance.

Birdguides news reporting the Little Bunting was still showing at Burnham Overy we set off. A full carpark at the end of the track to the sea wall indicated alot of birders were there but on arrival we were told been showing well but gone into the reeds. After a heavy shower it showed itself at the bottom of the sea wall on the footpath.

After this a short trip back to Titchwell  where we picked up 3 more Ring Ouzels and a female Red Crested Pochard but with poor light no pics.
