Another enjoyable day at Titchwell with a few highlights that included at least three Yellow-browed Warbler that at times showed well around the visitor centre with another low down along Meadow trail.

The continuing Pectoral Sandpiper strutted along the near shoreline of the freshmarsh totally oblivious to the many onlookers lined along the path.

Of course there were plenty of waders again, 20 species in total seen throughout the day that included Little Stint and Curlew Sandpiper in addition to the Pec.

A single Pied Flycatcher sortied for insects from trees along the main path and a single Swallow flew over the marsh.

Small groups of Redwing passed through and Goldcrest were foraging for insects after their impressive voyage across the sea.  Brambling were also present close to the visitor centre.

Reports of a Black-browed Albatross moving along the North Norfolk coast had birders hopping into a frenzy.  Lining up along the beach, a few claimed to have connected with it, but the general feeling was that 2nd year Gannet were causing a bit of confusion.  I personally don't think it was seen at all from Titchwell that day, but it is only the feeling I got as part of the assembled crowd.
