   Something different this weekend....a trip to Norfolk.

   First stop was at a site for Stone Curlews, which had been recommended to me, sadly i have also been told to keep it a bit sorry, i can't really say where it is! Im sure some of you already know anyway....!!! We had about 16 birds there, including adults & juveniles.

   Nothing really happening on the pager, or even people reporting stuff.....but at least the sun was out.

   So the rest of the day was spent at Titchwell RSPB. I was hoping to photograph Curlew Sandpipers, and other waders. sadly, i only saw one Curlew Sandpiper, and it was miles away.....

   But, as i said the light was really good, so i took some wader photos anyway....common stuff really i know, but in this light they still look cool, i hope you agree?

   Sadly, Titchwell is not what it used to be! It was probably the best in the UK, in my opinion anyway, and hopefully, after all the work that has been done, to protect the reserve, it will return to its best days soon..........look forward to that day.

   We then spent the last hour or so, looking for Caspian Gulls at Cromer Beach. Sadly, i couldn't find them. Lots of Gulls were there, the only stand out one though, was a Winter plumaged Yellow-legged Gull. Try again tomorrow.....
