_DSC1702

Few weeks ago while i was on holiday in north norfolk ,i visited rspb titchwell . Situated on the north coast of norfolk near thornham and holkham beach .its a large reserve with a very diverse habitat .stretching  from a wooded area at the entrance you can take two different trails one goes out to the beach and the other sort of follows the  coast but runs along scrapes. we decided to walk out to the beach as it was a hot and humid day and the cooler breeze from the sea would be most welcome .it takes about half an hour to reach the beach there are hides along the way and a few very large wetland scrapes actually a lot where many waders can be seen like the bar tailed godwit (above ) black tailed godwits avocets  redshanks ,sandpipers, and curlews. these are only what we saw in the scrapes but many many species can be viewed here varying on the time of year of your visit.on arrival at the beach ,terns can be seen common terns little terns and sandwich terns ,as well as oystercatchers ,turnstones _DSC1758_DSC1812

on the walk back gives you a second go at maybe spotting a more unusual bird , which is always possible .there is at the entrance a shop and cafe selling food and refreshments ,which is most welcome and you will need after the long walk !! certainly can recomend rspb titchwell very highly and is a must if you are a keen birder/photographer_DSC1710
