I’m back from Norfolk and had a wonderful time, the weather was great with only a couple of relatively short showers.
My birding list was as follows:
Great Crested Grebe
Black Headed Gull
At least I think that’s all, I could’ve missed some off…
We discovered a nice place called Fairhaven, a water garden fairly close to Strumpshaw, so we often went back for a cup of tea/bite to eat. We enjoyed a nice boat trip along the broads, eventually the end it did begin to rain so our visit was cut short after hiding under some azaleas from the rain watching a brood of LTT’s flit around feeding.
We visited Strumpshaw Fens, nice place and had a nice slow/long walk around the site 3/4 miles or similar I believe it was. We missed the bearded tits and Bittern, oh well. And apparently the day before Swallow Tail Butterflies had been seen, sadly I wasn’t so lucky!
I hope everyone has had a great Bank Holiday weekend, it’s been scorching hot here and I think I’ve caught the sun again after spending the morning birding in the local patch and then doing some gardening in the afternoon.
