January Highlights

 An unexpected invitation of a day trip to Norfolk made for a very enjoyable start to the birding year.

So an early 03:00 start to the day, but the sight of thousands of wildfowl out on the marshes along with several Raptor species made great viewing and the early start was soon forgotten.

This area is absolutely superb for wildlife and on the right day you can really see some wonderful sights.

A couple of highlights of the day include a Juvenile Pallid Harrier and a Humes leaf warbler, and with a total bird list of over 90 species the day turned out to be a very enjoyable one.

Making the most of a glorious sunny day I did a local woodland walk, it was nice to hear the more common species of birds like Robins and Both Blue and Great tits starting to sing. Also Great Spotted Woodpeckers drumming away in the treetops.

Looking forward to seeing what February bring some us.
