    Warbler from Turkey

    Looking at this on a proper monitor, the plumage tones do look much better for Lesser Whitethroat. Bill still looks big though.

    Norfolk birding

    Hi Phil, My understanding is Mandarin can be seen on the lake at Felbrigg all year round but can be sporadic in their appearances. I saw them on two of four visits last year- both late in the year- but they are regularly reported. Make sure to check for birds roosting under the trees on the...

    Warbler ID from Cyprus

    Surely this is a Great Reed? I have no experience of fuscus but can any Reed Warbler really look this brutish? Will

    Norfolk birding

    Walked the south side of Breydon Water this afternoon. Didn't see another person or, unfortunately, the Richard's Pipit that's been about. Best of the bunch were 23 Avocets and 2 Med Gulls (almost certainly loads more in the gull flocks in the distance) but loads of Dunlin, Grey and Golden...

    Thanks for the info fisherfinder. I've clearly mistimed my strolls past in the last few days. Good to have them back again. Will

    Got the train to Sheringham this morning with the plan of getting the Coasthopper to Salthouse. Only thing is, the bus didn't show up.... apparently it broke down in Cromer. Made do with a stroll along the seafront and a short seawatch. 1 Purple Sandpiper (roosting on boulders in front of the...

    Norwich Birding

    Pleasant stroll around Whitlingham with half the population of Norwich today. 7 Shoveler and a brief Kingfisher on the Little Broad were the highlights. Strolling back into town another Kingfisher was by riverside (in the buddleia that overhang the bank opposite Chiquitos). Will

    Norfolk birding

    Geese galore at Cantley early afternoon. c500 Pink-feet and c30 Whitefront along with the usual Canada, Greylag and dodgy Snow Goose type. A group of 20-30 very distant geese were almost certainly the Taigas but everything was flushed by a helicopter and I failed to relocate them on the deck...

    Norfolk birding

    Managed a very average view of a Lapland Bunting as it skulked out of the wind in the field west of the beach road at Salthouse today. The only other bird of note was a Red-throated Diver close inshore, alongside two male Mallards. Will
