13th Sept, the garden hosted 2 Buzzard, a nice Hobby, Sparrowhawk, 2 Grey Wagtail some Siskin 2 and a Goldcrest through. 5 Med Gulls catching ants Jay and a Green Woodpecker. Not bad for an hour sat in the garden whilst eating breakfast.
15th Sept Back on patch a Golden plover and flock of 20 Linnet, biggest flock this year.
19th Sept A Leucistic Collard dove that flew over the patch last week was now visiting me in the garden today. Then seen off by a more dominant normal Collard dove.
Sept 19th-25 headed for a weeks holiday at Kelling Heath again in North Norfolk, youll probably realise we love this place. Birding however during the week was really poor. I walked miles covering the usual places, Cley, Titchwell, Stiffkey, Kelling Water meadows. Sherringham, Cromer, Wells etc etc.
Not many highlights but at Titchwell 8 Spoonbills, 3 Little Stint and 3 Curlew Sandpiper and an Adult Med Gull.
At Cley a nice Short eared Owl.
The heath was great for Pinkfooted Geese this week and many more smaller flocks over Titchwell, Wells and Cley.
Pink Footed GooseThe weather was great so I managed to see the Dartford Warblers on a few occasions and quiet a few Adders, both adults and young. 18 Common Buzzard in one flock and a nice Juv Hobby.
