Redshanks vs Spotted Redshanks

Redshanks are a common wader found, year-round, on the marshes of the north Norfolk coast. At any time of year, on a visit to  RSPB Titchwell, Snettisham or the NWT Holme Dunes you often see redshanks probing their bills into the mud for insects, worms, and crustaceans. This year has even seen them returning to breed…


RSPB Titchwell Marsh in Summer

A Day at Titchwell Marsh This year we’d had a long period of summer days that started with great lighting for photography but quickly deteriorated into poor flat light.

Autumn Bird Watching on the Norfolk Coast

Condition like these could provide the chance of getting some closeups of birds on the low tide line. Plus the possibility of catching some early winter visitors. The hides at Titchwell in the morning are not…
