A Day Brding

I nice day birding around Norfolk on Sunday and as I hadn't been out in a while there was plenty to see, only problem being that we struggled to see it.

We walked around Norwich looking for Waxwing but only managed to see a man who saw them fly over the houses behind us.

We waited for about 45mins for the Great White Egret with no joy. But did enjoy watching the 4 Buzzards that circled nearby. In fact we saw a high number of Buzzards throughout the day. A Grey Wagtail called and flew over our heads but with Pied Wagtails and could not be picked out.

A look for Owls also proved fruitless at to sites.

At Roydon no sign of the Turtle Dove around the church, nor any Woodlarks on the common although I was sure I could hear one in the breeze. A Stonechat was present with a few more Buzzards around.

Golden Pheasants were hiding away whilst we had a drive through at Wolferton.

At Titchwell as usual birds everywhere with everything you'd expect on the feeders and pools.

The Brackish Marsh had the Twite flock on it and, the sea held 2 Red-necked Grebes with the Scoter flock and a high number of Red-breasted Mergansers. The freshmarsh had a close Water Pipit.

We then headed back via Chosley where around 80 Corn Buntings were singing. Another stop at Marlingford and the Great White Egret was finally showing although for only 5mins before heading into the river and out of site.
