North Norfolk

Feels like and age since my last Blog post but its probably just over a fortnight.
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 Goose
The 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.


So by the end of the week id only managed 2 Scarce birds really, a Yellow Browed Warbler at Walsey hills and a Barred Warbler at Kelling quags.
