Along the Norfolk Coast

It’s a good day for a walk in mid September, in the middle of an Indian summer with temperatures in the mid  to upper 20’s. We decided to head out for the day along the north Norfolk coast. First stop a visit in the morning to  Holkham Hall and a walk around the lake. At…


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. 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…


Late Winter walk at Titchwell RSPB reserve

With the winter showing signs of making way for spring and still a number of wintering visitors in residence we paid one of our regular visits to the Titchwell RSPB reserve. On this occasion we decided to take a quick look along the East Trail to the Fen Hide, just in case the kingfishers that…


Autumn along the West Bank at Titchwell

After a prolonged spell of easterly storms in the North Sea, the weather had finally cleared giving us a clear day. There were some reports of waxwings and some lingering migrants along the coast at Titchwell RSPB reserve, hopefully they would provide some good photo opportunities . A quick look along the Fen Trail to the Fen…


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…


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…


Curlew at Titchwell

On a recent trip to our local RSPB reserve at Titchwell, as well as some of the waders that overwinter in the area. We came across a solitary Curlew very close to the public footpath. During the winter you often see them at the reserve, but usually too far away to get good photos. However,…


-10 at Midday on the Norfolk Coast

February11th 8.00am, opened the back door and was greeted by clear blue skies, a covering of new snow. A temperature that you would associate with with high altitude, what some call an Alpine day. Ideal conditions for an outing to the north Norfolk Coast, in the hope of getting some shots of birds in winter. Plus with numerous reports…
