The last birding trip of the year was to RSPB Titchwell Marsh on the North Norfolk coast. Home to all sorts of shorebirds and harriers and winter visitors, it’s a known hot spot, though I was still surprised to find it so busy on a windy day (the Norfolk landscape is flat and there was no protection from the wind for miles.)
Ringed plover or little ringed plover?
A marsh harrier hunts in the setting sun.
Curlew or whimbrel? I never can tell!
