Summer Visitor update – Various – 5th May 2011

Apologies for not blogging, but we’ve been on a birding trip to Spain, covering Donana and some of Extremadura, more to follow.

Just before we left we were in Norfolk and taking note of all the summer visitors arrivals.  So just in case you are in any doubt hers are a few pointers to get some unique and scarce East Anglian birds.

Weeting Heath (NWT) – The Stone Curlews are there and we had distant, brief views of two birds on the 22nd April.

Lakenheath Fen (RSPB)Golden Orioles, please check with the reserve but these guys must be there or on their way.  The site is also very good for Grasshopper Warbler, Cuckoo and we had a male Garganey there on 22nd April.

Fingeringhoe (EWT) – Great for Nightingale, not been there this year but will do shortly.

Well I’m going to be sorting through my Spanish photographs and will blog a few of the species we saw very shortly.

East Anglia Year Count: 133
Life bird count: 399. Year bird count: 133. Month bird count: 82.
