Norfolk 30 April - 3 May

Red Legged partridge Snettisham - feeding within feet of the car

Red Crested Pochards Titchwell

Stonechat Snettisham

With Spring movement finally in full flow, a chance to fill in some of the missing links ? After finding 3 Black Terns in Bedford at Priory on friday morning, Snettisham produced several Cuckoos the next day - as well as at least 7 Weatears and 3 striking Winchats and good numbers of whimbrel. Not to be outdone a visit to Holme on Sunday produced 3 ring Ouzels, more Weatears, and a pale phased Arctic Skua on the Sea with Gannets and Little, Common, and Sandwich Terns. An afternoon visit to Titchwell gave up 2 Black Necked Grebes, a drake Gargeney and 3 Red Crested Pochards.
