RSPB Titchwell 23rd November

Had a trip out to the RSPB reserve at Titchwell today. The weather forecast failed me yet again and the expected "sunshine all day" failed to materialise but at least it didn't rain. Failed to connect with Bittern or Bearded Tits on this trip but there was plenty of other stuff to see including Hen Harrier, Red-breasted Merganser (40+ together off shore!), Spoonbill and Purple Sandpiper to name but a few. There was also a spectacular flock of Golden Plover. Spectacle of the day, however, was the sunset.

Some images from the day:
