Titchwell Marsh

Trip report for coach trip to Titchwell Marsh on 21st of May.

Eight of us enjoyed a trip to North Norfolk On the Hitchin & Letchworth coach. The weather was beautiful apart from a searching Northerly wind and we saw or heard over eighty species. (the whole party managed 100). It’s a shame there weren’t more of us.

We saw Gannet, Kittiwake, Sandwich and Little Terns and Common Scoter out to sea. There were Knot, Sanderling and Dunlin on the beach. The reserve itself was alive with ducks, geese, herons (including a Spoonbill), waders and gulls (including a pair of juvenile Little Gulls). One Little Ringed Plover appeared to be on a nest. Up to six Marsh Harriers were quartering the site.

Passerines were also there in good numbers including nine species of warbler. A lucky few of us saw a Bearded Tit, and others a Yellow Wagtail.

An excellent day for all who went.
