Norfolk Coast

Had a day on the norfolk coast first went to Cley quite alot around with Reed, Sedge and Whitethroats singing around the edges of the path then at sea path had good views of a Little Egret and a Hare and some distant views of Spotted Redshank, Common Redshank, Avocet including a few young ones, Little and Ringed Plover and the sounds of Common Terns overhead and Meadow Pipits and Linnets on the coastal Path. Even though the water was quite low on the pools still had a Little Stint, Oystercatchers, and Black-tailed Godwits along with a 7 Little gulls from a far. Then around the main hides Lots of little Froglets and a stunning Common Lizard despite beeing quite a grey day.

Next step was Titchwell where there lot of waders out on the scrape with the Sotted Redshanks and Black-tailed Godwits very close to the main hides so some nice views of them seem the after breeding rush south has started already. Also a bit further out were plenty of Marsh Harriers hunting and lots of gulls including quite a few Littles Gulls and a long distant view of a spoonbill after it dropped in before been dustured by a the harrier.
