Got Thrush? Norfolk has!

Well most people will of heard how the day went but here is our account of events, Adam and I headed to Burnham Overy Dunes the fog look like it was going to be a menace.

It was fantastic - thrushes galore every field, every tree and every bush. Highlights of the migrant hunt though has to be the Long-eared Owl that we flushed from brambles (we had been watching the brambles for 10mins before it flew and had not seen it we did not intentially flush it).

But here is our count for the day after arriving at 9am and leaving about 2pm there is no way these are lower and can only be higher. Redwing 5500, Fieldfare 3300, Blackbird 340, Robin 155, Song Thrush 63, Brambling 79, Goldcrest 75, Ring Ouzel 26, Chiffchaff 10, Meadow Pipit 10, Mistle Thrush 2, Crossbill 2, Woodcock 2, Snipe 2, Common Redstart 1, Blackcap 1.


Oh and I found this Osprey.

We then headed for Stiffkey to see the Red-flanked Bluetail which was nice also.
