Norfolk September Migration

Cley seawatchers Sept 2013

Our latest three day birdwatching trip to Norfolk was blessed with sunshine.

Red backed Shrike Cley Sept

What a bird to start with, Red backed Shrike at Walsey Hills.

News of a female Red backed Shrike at Walsey Hills, just east of Cley NWT Reserve, had us quickly on site. At first there was no sign of the rarity but we waited and kept scanning the bushes. Then Ruth spotted the shrike in a low hedge and we enjoyed great views in the lovely sunshine.

Black tailed Godwit Sept Cley

The hides at nearby Cley NWT gave brilliant views of waders and wildfowl.

Wigeon Sept Cley

A newly arrived Wigeon right in front of the hide.

Shoveler drake Sept Cley

This drake Shoveler was caught mid-stretch.

A visit to Cley NWT Reserve always provides lots of birds. We enjoyed great views of Bearded Tits from the East Bank, Ruff striding through the shallows, Golden Plover and Black tailed Godwits were here in big numbers.

Titchwell moody sky Sept

Early morning at RSPB Titchwell and lots of birds await!

Birds came thick and fast at one of our favourite birdwatching locations. A Barn Owl swept back and forth over the field by the entrance track. Cetti's Warbler gave its explosive song right the path. Reaching the lagoons it was a case of where to focus first! Spoonbills stood in the shallows, Marsh Harrier floated over the reeds, Golden Plover circled overhead, Pink-footed Geese swept in off the North Sea calling wildly as they reached the coast, magical birdwatching!

Ruff Sept Titchwell

Waders give amazing views at Titchwell, here a juvenile Ruff.

Black tailed Godwit Sept Titchwell

A Black-tailed Godwit gets down and dirty in the mud.

Bar t Godwit Sept Titchwell

Nice to compare the plumage of this Bar-tailed Godwit with the Black-tailed.

Spotted Redshank Sept Titchwell 1

The views of Spotted Redshank in the afternoon sun were just stunning.

Spotted Redshank Sept Titchwell 2

If you want to study waders RSPB Titchwell is a top spot.

Birding the beach Titchwell

The beach at Titchwell continues with more waders and more.

The birdwatching on the beach is brilliant in September, so many birds are on the move! Flocks of Pink-footed and Brent Geese were flying in from across the North Sea. Flocks of waders and duck were moving west as the beach was busy with feeding waders and gulls. Offshore Arctic Skuas chased Sandwich Terns above Eider and Great crested Grebes and an adult Little Gull flew east.

Horses Holme

We visited lots of locations along the North Norfolk coast and met the locals.

Wheatear Sept Burnham

This lovely Wheatear posed by the seawall at Burham Overy Staithe.

Other highlights of our three days included - some of the best ever views of Bearded Tits at three sites, Red Kites, Mediterranean Gulls, finding a Yellow-browed Warbler, Curlew Sandpipers, Little Stints, Avocets, and some great food in the local pubs. A superb three days, a huge thank you to Malcom, Peter and Sarah-Jane for their company and we hope to enjoy more birds with you all soon.
