Spring is with us (even if the weather is not particularly agreeing with that statement) and the bird activity has most definitely changed in recent weeks. The sound of geese overhead has been replaced with the calls of the Redshank, Avocet and other waders at the many nature reserves of the North Norfolk coast. I even heard my first calling Chiffchaff last week.
While I was sat in a hide at Cley waiting for a little bit of sunshine a Redshank obligingly walked towards me. It made up for the poor light and the distance at which anything else interesting was.
Something always turns up to make the trip worthwhile.
That would brighten up any bird watching session.ReplyDelete

Love the Redshank's colorful beak and legs!ReplyDelete
Birds are starting to return to our cabin in BC. Most recently it's been a hummingbird, four robins and a pair of red-throated loons. - MargyReplyDelete
