On 26th February 2019 I made my 1st visit to the RSPB reserve at Titchwell North Norfolk. The weather was amazing and had been for days previous. Clear blue sky and 17 degrees on the beach (in February).

As you park you will be greeted by small birds in the trees and probably Robins hopping around your car. As I walked towards the visitor centre I saw Blue Tits, A Wren, Robins, Black Birds and Pigeons.

From the visitor centre you can walk to the beach passing through the marshes and on route you will encounter many species of birds. Just over the bridge was a Water Rail foraging in the ditch. Soon after that a Reed Bunting posing on a branch.  Half way towards the beach is the viewing areas over the marshes .

On the beach and sea are more birds.

Once on the beach if you walk to the right until you reach the inlet you will often find seals basking on the sand.

These are the birds spotted during the day including some of the common Uk birds Robins etc.

This image below is a Marsh Harrier patrolling the reed beds. It was distant so the image is poor but you can tell it is a bird of Prey and a Marsh Harrier. it patrolled for several minutes and I got 3 or 4 ok shots.
