Titchwell Marshes and other places (27/8/12)

Me and my brother had a lift today to Titchwell Marshes by Chris Sharp.Titchwell Marshes turned out to be a very good trip. One of the first birds which we saw turned out to be a Grey Partridge as I have never made the effort to find one this was a lifer. Later on along the same road we stumbled upon a Red-legged Partridge. When we arrived we went along next to the mud flats to the channel. There were a lot of waders to be seen including 19 Spoonbill, a lot of Ruffs, a lot of Dunlins, a lot of Avocets, a lot of Golden Plovers and Bar anwd Black-tailed Godwits. After looking around the mud flats we moved on to the sea. We stayed at the sea for a while and saw a good amount of birds which were Sanderling, Bar and Black-tailed Godwit, Turnstones, Grey Plovers, Great Black-backed Gull, Sandwich TernsCommon Scoter3 Eiders and a OSPREY which was flying over the channel heading towards us. After the sea watching we headed back and saw some Spotted Redshank.

Ruffs of which there were at least 30+
After Titchwell Marshes we headed off to a good area for Tree Pipits unfortunately we didn't see one but we had a Hobby fly over.
