Migrants

Grey Wagtails are not often thought of as migrants … but they are!

Good numbers

Although Tree Sparrows aren’t rare in Norfolk they take a little finding. It was good to see excellent numbers of young birds as well as adults on our recent tour to Yorkshire.

A volery of Long tailed tits

Some of the most charming Long tailed Tits I’ve seen in a while came down to some feeders when we were in a hide last week. All the feeders were inside a chicken mesh cage which excluded squirrels and larger birds. I counted around 25 in or around the cage at one point.

Pallid Looks

A walk down to the south end of Snettisham RSPB eventually gave good views of a special recent visitor.

Over the pit, fields and saltmarsh floated a boa donning harrier from the east. Roaming widely we had to wait some time before the orange washed Pallid came close enough to surrender for a meaningful photo.

Talk it up!

After one Beluga in Northern Ireland we get a pair off Northumberland in August. Last seen swimming south. TOWARDS US … in Norfolk!

I’ve been doing quite a bit of sea watching of late. It’s easy to let one’s mind drift off sometimes with outlandish thoughts. Very therapeutic this staring at the sea. The thought of seeing a pair of Belugas drift passed like the two I photographed a couple of years ago in the St Lawrence; well, to assign a rating it would definitely fall in the ‘orgasmic’ bracket.

I’m not asking for much am I? Just a little extension of travel, a small deviation of direction and we could get those two in Norfolk. Talk it up. TALK IT UP!

Ruddy thing

In the garden my first Ruddy Darter of the year. It hung around for about an hour and then moved on.

Glass Window

As colourful as a stained glass window; this remnant of an introduction just looks like a butterfly should look. It’s such a shame these Marsh Fritillaries never did make a proper viable population.
