Thank you for your candour - it’s incredibly sad to hear about the demise of Orioles and Montys though! My plan for the weekend is to to have a day or two to take in Titchwell & Cley, so fingers crossed I can track down some Turtle Doves, Corn Buntings and whatever else I can find...I shall have a search where you suggest. Absolutely, it’s my first visit to the county and I’d be lying if I said the location and time of year was an accident!
Well you’ve picked a great time to visit! I apologise as didn’t realise you haven’t been before and aren’t to know the demise of certain birds. Both reserves will delight you anyway so enjoy finding what you can. I have enjoyed many occasions with Montys and Orioles - such a shame they no longer breed. But both possible on passage. Have a great time!

No worries at all, thank you so much for your help, it’s greatly appreciated. If I stumble across anything unusual, I’ll be sure to post a report.
 
Plenty to see in East Norfolk today: Hickling had Green, Wood and Common Sands, Temminck's Stint, and two or three Stilts, while an Osprey spent all afternoon at Ormesby Little Broad

I saw a couple of Pied Flies at Winterton this morning: nearby was an Icterine Warbler...

Does anyone know where to report colour ringed godwits? I had this black-tailed at the harbour at Brancaster Staithe early afternoon. I was glad I'd stopped to get photos of it (the only way to make sure I don't get the colour rings wrong) as a juvenile white-tailed eagle drifted over while I was watching the godwit!
