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 3 Saturday 27th October

This morning started off with another sea watch in Northerly force 8 winds with showers blowing into our faces. More Gannets, 3 Bonxies, Kittiwakes, and a few Little Gulls. A Little Auk had been reported found inland and just released on the saline pool at Salthouse was an opportunity to see the bird up close rather than over the sea.

Another look at the campsite incase the Bluetail showed up again but no luck, just loads of Robins, Blackbirds a couple of Ring Ouzels and a Woodcock flushed from under my feet.

 A Grey Phalarope was the next news so back to Titchwell where it was showing well but fairly distant, again good scope views were had and a couple of record shots.

A look in the hide at the hundreds of roosted gulls riding out the bad weather Paul managed to find this juvenile Caspian Gull

Meanwhile during the day Christine and Barry rescued this Guillemot and took it to a rescue centre near Kings Lynn and looks like it will recover.
