North Norfolk 10th - 17th September 2010

 Just had a very nice break in North Norfolk, staying in our touring caravan at Crossways Camp Site, Little Snoring (or rather a lot of snoring if you ask Heather!) near Fakenham. Managed some "good" birds but the weather was rather mixed (understatement), the main problem being the wind - for two days, I did a good impression of the couple featured on the elderly persons road sign - it was so strong! Anyway, got about 1000 images to go through! Blog will be updated as I go along, as will my website. Please visit regularly for updates, but to start with I will list my sightings:

Red Throated Diver; Dabchick; Gannet; Cormorant; Little Egret; Spoonbill; Grey Heron; Mute Swan; Canada Goose; Egyptian Goose; Grey Lag Goose; Pink Footed Goose (injured bird); Shelduck; Wigeon; Mallard; Gadwall; Shoveler; Pintail; Teal; Pochard; Tufted Duck; Marsh Harrier; Red Kite (on journey); Sparrowhawk; Buzzard; Hobby; Kestrel; Merlin; Peregrine; Pheasant; Red Legged Partridge; Grey Partridge; Water Rail; Coot; Moorhen; Avocet; Oystercatcher; Ringed Plover; Sanderling; Little Stint; Dunlin; Curlew Sandpiper; Turnstone; Knot; Common Sandpiper; Wood Sandpiper; Green Sandpiper; Redshank; Greenshank; Spotted Redshank; Juv Red Necked Phalarope; Ruff; Bar Tailed Godwit; Black Tailed Godwit; Grey Plover; Lapwing; Whimbrel; Curlew; Snipe; Great Skua; Juv Pomerine Skua; Artic Skua; Black Headed Gull; Yellow Legged Gull; Herring Gull; GBB Gull; LBB Gull; Common Tern; Sandwich Tern; Black Tern; Stock Dove; Wood Pigeon; Collared Dove; Barn Owl; Short Eared Owl; Swift; Kinfisher; Green Woodpecker; Great Spotted Woodpecker; Skylark; Sand Martin; Swallow; House Martin; Meadow Pipit; Yellow Wagtail; Pied Wagtail; Dunnock; Wren; Robin; Wheatear; Blackbird; Arctic Warbler; Chiffchaff; Willow Warbler; Whitethroat; Lesser Whitethroat; Blackcap; Goldcrest; Spotted Flycatcher; Pied Flycatcher; Bearded Tit; Long Tailed Tit; Marsh Tit; Coal Tit; Blue Tit; Great Tit; Treecreeper; Starling; Jay; Magpie; Jackdaw; Carrion Crow; Rook; House Sparrow; Chaffinch; Greenfinch; Goldfinch; Linnet; Reed Bunting; Lapland Bunting.
