We were based in Snettisham which has a stony beach and a vast area of mudflats. Ideal for waders of all varieties.
Bar-tailed Godwits on a flypast.
A Common Tern against the slate grey sky.
A Mediterranean Gull.
An Oystercatcher. Very common and very noisy, but also very colourful.
At Titchwell there were plenty of Resdshanks, Avocets, Shelduck and a few rarities flew in to make it even more enjoyable. A Spotted Redshank was a first for me, as were the Little Gulls that showed themselves very nicely, and the following day a Spoonbill dropped in, although it was too distant for my camera.
A Common Redshank.
A Spotted Redshank. (Apologies for the colour, the light was on the wrong side on a dull day.)
Come back soon for part 2 and some nice close ups of the very photogenic Avocet.
