October 14th 2010

A day out along the north Norfolk coast with the scissor sisters starting at Dersingham where Barn Owl and Short-eared Owl were hunting and a Woodcock flushed while looking for Golden Pheasant at Wolferton Triangle. Very little migration over Hunstanton so moved on to Holme where we managed 2 Little Egret, 3 Stonechat, 60 Goldcrest, 6 Blackcap, 3 Chiffchaff, 25 Brambling, Lesser Whitethroat, Redstart, plenty of Robins plus a few thrushes and Siskin.
The Titchwell R.S.P.B. reserve and the shoreline towards Thornham point was productive with 3 Bearded Tit, 2 Cetties Warbler, 2 Water Rail, 4 Spotted Redshank, 3 Little Egret, Little Stint, Marsh Harrier, 3 Lapland Bunting, 4 Snow Bunting, Twite, Red-throated Diver, Red-necked Grebe, Common Scoter, Velvet Scoter, Red-breasted Merganser and 6 Brambling the most memorable seen here.
After fish & chips at Wells next the Sea with a Spoonbill over the quay for company we pushed on to Warham Greens where we caught up with the Pallas’s Warbler and Yellow-browed Warbler plus a fly over Hawfinch, Redstart, Merlin, Brambling and Little Egrets.
We then decided despite meaning a very long journey home to go Waxham where we had stunning views of a juvenile Red-flanked Bluetail.
