It was positively balmy even at 8.45am on the cliffs at Hunstanton & we didn’t even have to huddle in the shelters! Good sightings were had in excellent visibility of Common Scoter, Red-breasted Merganser, Long-tailed Duck, etc & some flying critters that not everyone was able to catch on to! We then moved on to Titchwell as per normal & were rewarded with all the usual suspects plus other good things if you were in the right place at the right time! It was straight to the Coues’ Arctic Redpoll for starters on the main path before an amble to the sea. From the path some saw Spoonbill, some Mandarin Duck, some Great White Egret (they have been recommended to see an optician) & total sightings shot up rapidly. The sea watch also gave a good return of waders but what was flying where remains a mystery to all but the very few! The party was thinning out by the next stop at Gun Hill for the view of 2 White-fronted Geese & we were down to 10 for a walk round Holkham Hall where we saw c.40 Brambling, Green & Great-spotted Woodpeckers, Redwing, Fieldfare, Mistle Thrush, Treecreeper, Nuthatch & Red-crested Pochard – impressed & wish you’d been there? Some snuck off to record a Snow Goose before rejoining at the Great Grey Shrike twitch at Fakenham. Fred’s list was 82!
