Thrush Nightingale retrapped at Holme - with a well behaved Wryneck, an obliging Spoonbill at Snettisham - and a supporting cast on land and Sea .....

16 September. An early start at Holme , with the mist shrouding the Broadwater ........ The early seawatching session was quickly abandoned as the thrush Nightingale was retrapped

Redstart Holme Dunes. An influx of Redstarts and both Spotted and Pied Flycatchers saw birds scattered around the dunes and Observatory for several days - with a Wryneck also present for 4 days. Unlike the elusive bird several weeks previously, this one allowed good views on the ground and on top of bushes Privet Hawk Moth Caterpilar Holme DunesJuvenile Spoonbill snettisham RSPB. 17 September Not the first I have seen on the reserve but the most co-operative for the Camera. Present over several days that coincided with September's high tides
