Norfolk day 3

Another relatively uninspiring day but the weather was gorgeous - clear blue skies and unseasonally HOT....

And I evn got a brief opportunity to catch a male Bearded Tit at Cley!





Where the waders were not so plentiful but including Green Sandpiper.....



Plus plenty of Ruff as usual! This male came fairly close.....





Most of the action was in the sky with a family of Marsh Harriers interacting. Frustratingly distant but nevertheless, some great action.....











Some creatures have no shame, I had to step over this copuluating pair of Common Darters!



Then, taking to the reeds.....



I moved onto Titchwell inh the afternoon. Nothing much had changed there! When all else fails, there's always a few Turnstones about!









This one had a bit of an identity crisis or maybe longing for a Godwitesque bill?



I was really hoping to get some shots of the wader roost but the Knot etc were really flightly and often disturbed by walkers/dogs......



Who cares, a pretty and idyllic end to the day as the sun dropped below the dunes...
