The return home day, after three great days birding in Norfolk. The plan was to return via RSPB Adwick Washlands on the way thru. finally arriving at Adwick at about 1pm to a full car park, so I had a wait of about 10 – 15 mins before a space became available.
Little bit of a steady walk down to the actual Marsh area, along Lowfield Lane, lots to se on the way down there, Chaffinch, Robin, Kestrel, Crow, Chiffchaff, Dunnock, Canada Geese, Greenfinch, Long tailed Tit and Woodpigeon.
At the marsh area, first pool, plenty of Avocets along with Black headed Gulls, Gadwall, Teal, Wigeon, Mallards and a couple of Redshank. I then moved off and had a look at the feeders, along the hedgerow in the left field, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Reed Buntings, Robin, Blue and Great Tits all to be found.
Further down the lane, another pool, again on the right side, there was a small number of birders assembled, looking at the bird I’d forgotten about, a drake Garganey, always a nice bird to see, a summer migrant to these shores.
A nice ending to a wonderful four days birding
