It’s Summer in England

posted in: John Edwards Blog | 0

Today has seen clear blue skies and this is truely an English summer’s day. Today was our first visit to Titchwell Marsh a well organised RSPB site. We had a great day starting off with moths at 9am – no, I’m not getting nerdy or geeky – but there were some experts there. We ticked off fifty birds and the star of the day was a Whimbrel that we watched for 20 minutes or so – there was no doubt about it and our first since Tabarca about four years ago. According to a RSPB man there was also a juvenile Mediteranean Gull amongst all the Black headed Gulls which we did get the scope on. We finished off this little jaunt with a visit to the Kings Head in Blakeney and beer served from behind the bar – you can’t get that in Spain or better it.
