We had another great week in North Norfolk in late October/early November. We were lucky enough to be there at the same time as some rarities, notably Little Bunting, Barred Warbler, Yellow Browed Warbler, Little Auk and White Rumped Sandpiper, all of which we managed to get great views of! We had heard that there were some Waxwings around, and came across two of them by chance while driving around the country lanes one afternoon – they were very obliging and allowed Ian to get some great photos.
We also had amazing views of two Barn Owls from Wiveton Bridge, where we headed for on our way back to the cottage in the late afternoon – they were hunting in the fields most days and we always enjoyed watching them until it got too dark to see them!
One day we went to Titchwell and walked down to the beach for some sea-watching where a small crowd had gathered to see, quite unusually, a Woodcock which was sitting on the beach amongst the seaweed. We watched it for quite a while until the tide came in and eventually forced it to fly off!
We always enjoy our half-term week in Norfolk.
