Snettisham Nature Reserve. The first thing I noticed was the blackberries. Acres and acres of bushes just waiting for a jam-maker but we weren't there for that. The geese were shouting to be seen. You can get amazing views of waders at this reserve as the tide comes in and pushes the feeding birds off the massive mud flats. Unfortunately we missed the tide. We got impressive views of the empty mudflats!
We saw about fifty species before the rain began and we headed in.
That night we ate at The King's Head in Great Bircham .... excellent food and service. I would recommend it if you are in that area.
The next day we headed for Cley and got the best views of Bearded Tits. Four even posed on a bush for a few seconds. I enjoyed looking at them too much to faff about with my camera but Andy managed to grab a shot.
This Little Egret was an easier subject.
It was a lovely weekend in good company in a beautiful place. We saw about 100 species of birds including Rough Legged Buzzard but it was the common old Starlings that were the most memorable aspect of the trip ... thousands of them. Huge flocks on the move during Saturday. Then we didn't see any on Sunday.
