Great Knot


Couldn't resist having a go for this Siberian mega! Only 5th record for the UK and only 2nd for Norfolk - the previous in 2014 didn't hang around long enough for me to try. Anyhow, my effort paid off with a lovely look at this very rare bird at Titchwell RSPB on Freshwater Marsh. It took a little while to connect as it was tucked in the middle of 100's of Red Knot. Luckily, they decided to shuffle around a bit and the Great Knot then really stood out. 47 species recorded on this flying visit.
