We set off early this morning arriving at Choseley Barns at 7.30am where I scoped the Dotterel in the rain without too much help from the Jims who already had the tick from a recent twitch in Herts.
Once I found the birds their mood changed and they jumped out to enjoy distant views along with Turtle Dove, Grey & Red-legged Partridge and Corn Bunting also adding value.
After putting news out we moved on to Titchwell where we found a few good birds……Turtle Dove in the car park, Spotted Flycatcher by the picnic area, Swifts over the reedbed before arriving at Freshmarsh where we picked out Little Stint and Little Tern.
On the way home we diverted to Fen Drayton where a couple of hours gave only good views of a few Hobby but we failed the nail the Red-foot amongst them.
Year list now 230.
Essex Birder using the blog as a diary of my trips around the country chasing birds. Enjoying the places it takes me and the people I meet along the way. Great to spend time with my Dad and brother as we chase our year lists and grow our life list in the process.
