Weekly wildlife roundup - Spring...?
With no let up in the northerly winds, new spring migrants have been thin on the ground this week although there has a few bright moments. The highlight was a spotted flycatcher feeding for much of the day in the shelter of the picnic area. They are getting much rarer these days so it always nice to...

Spring has finally sprung
After what seems like such a long winter it has been great this last week to see a real arrival of summer migrants. At this time of year the most obvious are the warblers and the hirundines (swallows and martins) As soon at the wind moved into the south there were large numbers of swallows, house and...

To help a 'spoonie'
As you will know from recent posts, we have seen a massive shellfish wreck at Titchwell that has attracted large numbers of gull to the reserve. Well, it is not only the gulls that have been enjoying this food bonanza but we have been getting large numbers of oystercatcher, turnstone and sanderling along...

Over recent weeks we have seen an increase in birds feeding on the fresh marsh, a sure sign that autumn is approaching and the birds are starting to move south from their breeding...

What a difference a few days make
Following the dodgy weather of the Easter break, back to work and conditions improve! Not a bad thing for us as we are now into the thick of the breeding season survey work. With calm conditions this morning we have been able to get out and check the reedbed for bitterns and bearded tits. Unfortunately...

Autumn migrants at last
With a slight change in wind direction this morning the first 'quality' bird of the autumn has been located on the Meadow Trail. A yellow-browed warbler was heard calling near the Fen Meadow and was seen with a mobile flock of long-tailed tits although the heavy rain here now has foeced the bird...

Unicorns, eruptions and Siberian arrivals
This morning I just didn’t know what to expect. My first job was to open a sluice and let a little flush of water into the fresh marsh. The wind was pushing what little water there was up to the eastern end of the lagoon, concentrating birds at the furthest point from viewing. The little ‘flush’...
