We started our trip out to RSPB Titchwell at around 9.15am, on a stunning morning. The sun was shining and there was a bit of warmth to the air as well. With our face masks and hand sanitiser in hand, our group of 6 ventured off onto the reserve to see what we could find. We had agreed that we would aim for the beach as high tide was around 5am, so the tide would still be reasonably close in and the birds would be closer to us. We glanced over the scrapes but knew we would come back to them at a later time. On the beach we had many adult and juvenile Gannets flying along the horizon, who were joined by 2 Great Crested Grebes nearer to the shoreline and gave us very good views. Also on the sea was a Red Throated Diver which is always a sight to see. We scanned the shoreline, which resulted in Brent Geese, Oystercatchers, Grey Plovers, Bar Tailed Godwits, as well as Sanderling whizzing up and down!
