With all the birding action being in the SW or on the Scottish Islands at the moment we have very little to look at locally. Despite this we enjoyed a lovely day out with a friendly fun tour group along the North Norfolk coast. The highlights were Bittern, c25 Bearded Tits, 6 Curlew Sandpipers and a Whinchat at Titchwell. 4 Greenshank at Stiffkey Fen followed by Little Stint, Curlew Sandpiper and Spotted Redshank at Cley. Signs of the coming winter too with a couple of early Pink-feet and Brent Geese. All in all a very pleasant day in the sun seeing all that was available - you can't do much more!
