Winter Birds at Titchwell
Shovellors on Titchwell Fresh Marsh
Bittern over Bett's Pool, Titchwell
Yesterday was a beautiful crisp, cold, blue sky day over Titchwell and I managed to grab 90 minutes birding on the reserve.
Highlightes were good views of 3 or 4 of the 5 Bitterns that were frequenting Betts' Pool to the west of the West Bank Path. Three red head Smew were also good too see as was a Chinese Water Deer feeding on the saltmarsh. Two Marsh Harriers were also nice. But the main thing was just the stunning winter light which I hope I have captured a little of the essenc of in the Shovellor snap above.
