First stop on Sunday morning was Sheringham where a seawatch produced a few passing Scoters and Red-throated Divers but I was in danger of being trapped by a Remembrance Day service..... Salthouse beckoned, where good numbers of Twite have been reported recently. Never an easy bird (unless you are in a favoured location for them!) I still needed them for the year, having dipped them on the Wirral earlier in the year :-(
They didn't take long to find either, in between the pools and Gramborough Hill. One would have done but there were 20+ Twite (290) feeding in the short grass, together with Linnet, Reed Bunting and Goldfinch.
Occasionally flitting onto the fence wires.
Then feeding often out of view on the seed crop!
A hint of the pink rump here!
After quietly watching them for about 30 mins, one came mush closer, happily feeding in front of me:-)
Eventually perched up on top, I'll settle for these?
There was also a confiding Purple Sandpiper nearby!
