Norfolk Day Three

Another superb day in North Norfolk with blue skies and summer sun.

Bar-tailed Godwit
Barn Owl to start the day was again a good start followed by a good spell at Thornham where hundreds of Curlew have gathered. A Spoonbill was present again along with Redshank, Greenshank, Ringed Plover and Golden Plover. Common Buzzard, Kestrel and Marsh Harrier flew over to move the gathered waders around and at sea Gannets and Cormorants were in good numbers.

At Brancaster the Turnstones entertained for a while before we took Tia for a run in the waves at Brancaster beach where Gannets, Auks and Sandwich Terns were moving and a single dark Shearwater (probable Sooty) was seen flying West.

At Titchwell the highlights were three Spoonbill, two Curlew Sandpipers and three Little Stint along with a couple of Snipe, Marsh Harrier and the usual suspects.
No Owl action tonight (I spent too long watching the Stints and Sandpipers) but a fine days birding in great weather.
