North Norfolk Coast

Norfolk ~ Monday 18th - Friday 22nd February 2013 ~

For quite some time Norfolk has been high on my list of places to visit and, after a lot of persuasive conversations with my parents and some not-so-subtle hint dropping, I finally booked a 5 day trip to the north Norfolk Coast during my February half term.

I visited lots of different sites, my favourites being Titchwell and Salthouse. Here are some shots from my fabulous trip:

Black-bellied Dipper. This bird has been frequenting the River Thet for some time so I jumped at the chance when I got the opportunity to visit it!
Another Black-bellied Dipper shot
Apologies if you're getting bored of this bird but this image illustrates the issue of waste polluting our rivers. In this image, the Black-bellied Dipper is perched on what appears to be a crisp packet.
Snowdrops were numerous on the bank of the River Thet and I had to be very careful not to damage them while photographing the Black-bellied Dipper.
Seeing my first Hare in Norfolk was a real privilege, but when this individual let me commando-crawl within 10 metres I just couldn't believe how camouflaged and well adapted they are!
Normally I can never get close to Bar-tailed Godwits, however the birds at Titchwell were very obliging.

At Salthouse lots of Black-headed Gulls joined the Turnstones and Snow Buntings that were feeding on seed, metres from our car (hide).
A nice surprise came in the shape of this Purple Sandpiper that was associating with the Turnstones in the car park at Salthouse.
One of the many Snow Buntings that came down to feast on the seed put out for them.
