The last week or so has found me on the coast doing a spot of birding. Titchwell has been windy and quiet, West Acre has been incredibly quiet and Pentney has been equally dull. However I did get an invite into a local garden near the shop and managed to slip out of the shop for twenty minutes, and luckily the Bramblings were still present.
Bramblings in the last week and one had a completely black head, but for my twenty minutes I had to suffice with just three birds - fantastic.
