With Spring coming to an end and summer well under way, spring migration is finished and we are already seeing signs of summer birds on the move, small flocks of Starlings, Lapwings and Swifts all typical of mid June.
There has been plenty to see at Titchwell with Spotted redshanks, Curlew sandpiper already returning and the near resident Great white Egret still present, Spoonbills most days and plenty of Med Gulls, also good numbers of Bearded Tits.
Scare visitors along the coast this Spring have included a late arrival of Red backed Shrikes, common Rosefinch, Bluethroats and rarer still a singing Greenish Warbler at Titchwell and Norfolks second record of Moltoni’s Warbler on Blakeney point. A Buff breasted Sandpiper at Potter Heigham shows returning non breeding waders are on the move also. We shall in July brings further surprises!.
Good birding for the rest of the year.
