North Norfolk day tour, 23 September 2011

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!
