So, my Norfolk birding adventure has drawn to a close, and it was much better (birding-wise and weather-wise) than I thought it was going to be! Overall we got 101 bird species (including 3 heard-not-seens, 1 feral Barnacle Goose, 1 probable Woodcock and I counted the Guillemots/Razorbills seen whilst sea watching as 1 species). 14 of these were year ticks, and 7 were lifers:
It was an amazing holiday, with the best bird being the Long-eared Owl at Walsey Hills. I learnt some new skills, like sea watching and identifying the birds at such long range, and some new photography skills too. And getting the bird count to over 100 was great!
I'm off to Yorkshire tomorrow to see family, and we usually see a Red Kite there or on the journey, so I will let you know if I do!
