20th June 2018 – Holkham Hall and RSPB Titchwell Marshes

We were having a day off “birding” today and were going to visit Holkham Hall. However, the Hall was closed but we did enjoy a pleasant walk around the grounds and to the (enormous) walled garden.

It was rather too windy to go for a walk on the beautiful beach at Holkham and so instead made a brief return to RSPB Titchwell Marshes which was not much further along the North Norfolk coast.

At Holkham there were amazing numbers of geese (mainly Barnacle but some Greylag and even Egyptian) with loads of goslings. Also we saw lots of swallows, a mistle thrush and even an oystercatcher feeding on worms on the lawn.

The highlight at Titchwell was a little ringed plover which posed at all sorts of angles.
