NORFOLK BIRD NEWS AND UK MEGA'S POSTED DAILY, PHOTOS, BIRDING AND MORE!

Since 8th September there has been an issue with my link to the FatBirder Website, my ranking is normally No.10! For some unknown reason the F.B website is not recognising my actual daily views, so I'm dropping like a stone on their rankings! BUT in reality I'm not, my Stats for my blog remain the same. Please bear with me until this is sorted! Update 19th September – might be sorted now! Slowing climbing back up - will remove this message when I get back to No.10!

Birding in the rain at Titchwell RSPB!

Considering the heavy rain, I had a good selection of birds this evening! A Turtle Dove was 'purring' in the car park. The East Trail produced a Barn Owl, Marsh Harriers x 2, Great Crested Grebe, Tufted Ducks, Little Grebe, Swallows, Swifts, Sand Martins. There were hundreds of tiny baby toads all along the paths around the East Trail – they were so small I could only just see them – I had to step very carefully!

Along the Fen Trail a Cuckoo and Cetti's Warbler were calling, a bedraggled Sedge Warbler posed briefly and a Wren posed briefly by the Fen Hide.

On the Freshmarsh from Island Hide I had several 'two's'! Curlews x 2, Turnstones x 2, Spotted Redshanks x 2, Spoonbills x 2, Little Gulls x 2, Reed Warblers x 2, Pied Wagtails x 2, a Mediterranean Gull, Black-headed Gulls, Herring Gulls, Sandwich Terns, Common Terns, Lapwings, Avocets and juv., Black-tailed Godwits, Shelducks, Teal, Shoveler, Gadwall, Heron, Bearded Tits pinging, Reed Bunting, Cormorants, Oystercatchers, Blackbird, Coots, Moorhens, Redshanks. I could not see any Garganey. As I left Island Hide at about 8pm, I disturbed a huge Starling flock in the willows. A very wet walk back to my car. A squirrel knocked a nest box down in the picnic area as I walked past – on investigation it was luckily empty! Visited mother for a short while, before heading home to sort all my wet gear out!
