A NORFOLK roundup

Up to 34 COMMON CRANES can be found in the Horsey area - they roost each evening in the reedbed at Brayden Marshes where they can be seen from Stubb Mill - at the end of the lane beyond the Hickling Reserve car park. By day, parties of them can be seen in the fields just SE of Horsey Mill and in the stubble and ploughed fields around the Brograve Farm corners just west of Waxham

In the Holkham Freshmarsh area, there are 203 Eurasian White-fronted Geese, whilst at Titchwell RSPB, 3 redhead SMEW are on the main freshmarsh, along with Bittern, Spotted Redshank, Ruff and 2 Water Pipits.

An adult BLACK BRANT is in the main harbour at Wells-next-the-Sea, whilst in the Yare Valley east of Norwich, some 32 TAIGA BEAN GEESE remain at Cantley Marshes RSPB (viewable from the end of Bunt Hill Lane)

Just south of Norwich, at Whitlingham Country Park, the juvenile GREAT NORTHERN DIVER is still showing well on the Great Broad, whilst the adult BOHEMIAN WAXWING can be easily seen in Norwich between the railway line and Morrison's Supermarket on the A147 Koblenz Avenue.

A further 4 SMEW (2 drakes) are on Barton Broad, with 54 Bewick's Swans and 2 Whooper Swans nearby at Ludham Bridge and a further mixed herd of 18 and 3 respectively behind the gas storage depot in Catfield.

Two SHORE LARK are on the beach at the south end of Snettisham Pits (with 40 Snow Buntings), with a further 50 Snow Buntings on the pools and shingle just west of Salthouse Beach car park
