I can't complain really, I had some great early mornings and the weather was good too, despite a rather cold easterly wind. One bird that I really wasn't expecting to see was a Greenshank at Morston. It's a bird I usually have to make a concerted effort to see each year, so this was a real bonus.
Greenshank workings it's way through the muddy estuary.
Here with a Curlew. A good size comparison.
Never easy to locate, but this Grey Partridge popped up nicely on my walk.
A really good looking male Northern Wheatear. One of the highlights. They popped up everywhere.
Hello Adam. Beautiful photos. The Curlew is awesome.ReplyDelete
...a wonderful selection this week, Adam. I like the sweet little Northern Wheatear!ReplyDelete
Hello, wonderful variety of birds. I love the Grey Partridge! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend! Happy Easter!ReplyDelete
Wonderful bird variety as usual. I like the size comparison. The partridge is a beauty, as is the last shot. Happy Easter!ReplyDelete
What a nice series!ReplyDelete
The Partridge is my favourite because it is the rarest for me.
Have a peaceful Easter weekend!
I LOVE reading the term...a birding mecca!! That alone, would have me out and about all day. And you found some awesome birds along your walk. Hope you had a great time with your parents....Have a great holiday if you observe, and thanks for taking time to share your post and photos with us at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend!!ReplyDelete
Looks like you did pretty well, Adam, and there are always going to be a few misses. I have only visited Norfolk once, but spent a great morning at the RSPB Reserve at Titchwell. I enjoyed it very much indeed and would return in a heartbeat.ReplyDelete
"Right time and right place was what it was all about. I missed out on a number of birds by minutes, and others by not quite being in the right place." oh i am so with you on that...but at times i think they see up leave and are just more comfortable coming in. birds are so smart!!ReplyDelete
i enjoyed seeing the wheatear, a pretty bird and a beautiful picture!!
you did very well adam, you'll get the rest next time...because us birders are always on it!!!
Parents in Norfolk? You are very lucky Adam but I'll bet they see you lots, especially at certain times of the year.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos of the birds,Adam. I like the Greenshank, I have never seen one before, thank you.ReplyDelete
Lovely avian photography ~ always wonderful! Love the 'shore' birds!ReplyDelete

I was going to say the same thing as Phil S above! I was watching some greenshank a couple of weeks ago - wonderful birds.ReplyDelete
cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Great photos! The Northern Wheatear is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week!
Thanks for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2019/04/springtime-is-glorious.html
Great photos of the Greenshank and I like the size comparison with the Curlew.ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming to my blog, Marmelade Gypsy, for now I have found yours. You must get out VERY early in the morning. Beautiful images.
Nice to be out and about discovering birds! Whenever I hear of a partridge siting, I’m afraid my mind turns to that song about the pear tree.ReplyDelete
What a fabulous photo of the wheatear.ReplyDelete
Here on the Gulf Coast of Texas we have lots of opportunities for birders as birds are flying north from South America where they wintered. I'm volunteering at the Neotropical Bird Observatory in Quintana Beach Friday and I hope I will see and hear about a lot of species.ReplyDelete
I always like size comparison pictures, they are so helpful to amateurs like me (although I don’t think we have greenshanks on this side of the pond)....Same for the sweet wheatears...I’d love to stumble on even one of those!ReplyDelete
They're all stunning, the partridge is my favorite.ReplyDelete
I like the last bird. Have a great week.ReplyDelete
Fabulous feathered critters!ReplyDelete
You must have a great eye to catch these guys...ReplyDelete
