The View from the East

I thought you might like to see some of the wildlife we spotted on our May holiday in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Avocets were were widespread over both nature reserves that we visited (Titchwell and Cley-next-the-Sea) but it was a delight to see a youngster. You can see it is already developing the upwardly curved bill that it uses to skim food from the water.

This black-headed gull gull chick and juvenile wren added to the ‘nursery’.

This is the first time I have seen a jay or a jackdaw on a bird-feeder. We spotted these members of the Corvid (crow) family  at Titchwell RSPB reserve.

In addition we saw numerous waders (including large numbers of godwits), meadow pipits, a little grebe with a chick and distant sightings of marsh harriers as well as a variety of butterflies and dragon flies.

Finally, as we paused for lunch by the River Yare in Yarmouth, this seal was basking on the shore.
