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. Finally we had the promise of a few days of bright, warm weather with clear skies. Plus a predicted low tide early in the day that…


Minsmere’s Amazing Adders

It was a bright, sunny day in early spring and we were on a morning walk in search of Minsmere’s amazing adders, Britain’s only venomous snake native to the UK. After watching last years BBC Springwatch programme, where they managed to track a number of the snakes, it seemed a good place to look. A…


Winter Shorebirds and Waders

As we live near the sea we often visit the local Norfolk coastal marshes and beaches, especially during the winter months. There’s less people around and the birds seem to be a bit more tolerant. Its a great place to see our winter shorebirds and waders.  Holme, Titchwell Marshes and Cley are considered to be…


The private life of the Dunnock.

There’s an old saying that you never stop learning and that’s never more true than when you start looking at the natural world . The other day, at RSPB Titchwell, we saw a Dunnock busily collecting insects for its’ chicks. It’s a bird we often see in the garden and is known for its’ secretive…


Early Spring at the RSPB Titchwell Reserve

After a what seemed a very long winter unable to venture too far from home it was great to be able to walk out to the beach at the RSPB Titchwell reserve and take in the early spring sun and the reserves wildlife getting ready for the breeding season. Plus the opportunity to get to…


Kingfishers at Titchwell RSPB reserve

After many, NO dozens of visits to the Fen hide at Titchwell and enviously looking at the days sightings board only to see that earlier in the day kingfishers had made an appearance. I finally managed to visit on a day when one was allegedly making regular visits, so there was at last a chance of…


Global Traveller

One of our regularly walks when out at Titchwell is to the beach.  Usually we turn right in the hopes of seeing the small seal colony, that rests up in one of the creeks that flow out into the sea.  On this walk we decided to head in the other direction and try to get some…


Bempton Cliffs

Having travelled down to Pembrokeshire last June to visit Skomer. In the hope of getting some photos of the sea birds especially the Puffins. We thought that a trip up to Yorkshire and the Flamborough head area this year might provide another opportunity. Not knowing much about the east coast above the Norfolk area we didn’t know…


Frampton Marsh

A casual conversation over a cup of coffee at Titchwell reserve with a fellow birder. Suggested that as Frampton Marsh coastal wetland reserve was about the same distance from our base it might be worth a visit at this time of the year. Well the distance was right only 10 mins more according to the…


Shoreline Waders at Titchwell

With the Autumn weather patterns now well established, this mornings cloudy skies didn’t look very promising for photography. In north Norfolk however travel towards the coast and you often find the weather improves. So with an incoming tide I decided to take a look for along the Shoreline at the Titchwell  in the hope of…
