Till The Coue’s Come Home

After out efforts at Cley we headed West to Holkham and after a bit of searching we found the birders watching the Shorelark – a tick for The Hooded Birder – but dog-walkers flushed the birds before we could settle down and have a good look/get some video and photos. Unable to find any Twite among the Skylark and Linnet we headed to the East end of Holkham Gap getting sand-blasted on the way to look at the 80 odd Snow Bunting. At least two cracking adult males in the flock.

Continuing west, we pitched up unsurprisingly at Titchwell where a small crowd was watching the Coue’s Arctic Redpoll… not a classic by any means and one that could easily be passed over for a Mealy Redpoll any day of the week.

Parrinder Hide was quite productive with The Llama picking out not only an adult Mediterranean Gull but this superb Yellow-legged Gull.
