Titchwell was (predictably) crowded, but still produced some good photographic opportunities and interesting birds, including Grey Partridge, Sanderling, Eider, Scoter, Sandwich Terns, lots of Ruff and 17 Spoonbills asleep on a distant spit.
We drifted eastwards, finishing up at Cley where (after crab sandwiches!) we walked right around the perimeter of the reserve. The North Scrape held a further 13 Spoonbills (again, dozing in the watery sun) as well as Snipe and Ruff.
As we approached the East Bank a couple of light aircraft flew over low, briefly putting up another 12 Spoonbills: 35 in a day - my all-time UK record haul!
