Weekend Catch Up

Friday Lunch I nipped to Gorleston where these Waxwings showed for 15 seconds before flying away

The patch early Sunday morning produce not much with this being the only bird of note.

From the patch I wanted to take to Dad to Titchwell for his birthday, we went to various locations starting at Denver Sluice where this Goosander showed well and only one other male was visable. We also saw Whooper and Bewick Swans nearby. A Barn Owl was hunting nearby also.


From Denver we headed to Flitcham where this Sparrowhawk was looking alot better than the previous one we had seen.

We saw Tree Sparrow a small flock of 7 in with 12 or so Chaffinch and 3/4 Brambling. The Meadows had a large flock of Fieldfare and Redwing. This Red Kite also flew over.

Next Stop was Titchwell, the wind was bitterly cold but the birds were still about. The Red-crested Pochard was still on Patsy's Pool

Huge numbers of Gull was on the tide line, including two Med Gulls one ad and one 1w. A flock of about 20 Twite were also on the beach, as well as my first Bar-tailed Godwit of the year.

 This Long-tailed Duck look out of place on the marsh but I can hardly blame it.

 The walk back we saw Spotted Redshank and my first Black-tailed Godwit of the year.
