Birds of the day...




... were undoubtedly the two juvenile Dotterel at RSPB Snettisham. As well as having huge Bambi-style eyes, elegant looks and the good sense to pose nicely among the ox-eye daisies, they endeared themselves to assembled birders even more by being very tame indeed.

Hurrah for Dotterel!


The resident female Scaup on the pit nearby had less appeal, somehow.


Curlew Sandpipers were present in good numbers (c30) at RSPB Titchwell Marsh.

I really should get off my backside and get up to Norfolk more often. Thanks to Darren, Dave, Joy, Pete and Corinna for a grand day out!
