Norfolk Day 4

Day 4 was spent almost entirely at Titchwell with hopes of Bearded Tit...... sadly dashed again! Eventually I got to the beach and with the tide just starting to drop bumped into Deano Eades!! A long overwaited encounter and we had a pretty good day with a good cast of waders on display and generally put the bird photography world to rights :-)

A reflex few images were grabbed as an Arctic Skua came out of nowhere - blasting past within 50m of the beach!







The mussel beds eventually got exposed and one of the smartest (and equally elusive) birds on show was this Summer plumaged Grey Plover.....







Here they come!




Plenty of Knot probing in the sand










Brent Geese - 1..... 2..... 3.......







Turnstone, as ever obliging....





Redshank gliding in and sticking!













Bar-tailed Godwits - stepping out.....











Interesting comparison shot with Blackwit!
