Early Saturday morning, we started the drive down to Norfolk and although bird watching was on the agenda, most of the travellers were too tired to notice the curlew Simon spotted. Our first stop was The Wash Nature Reserve; the location at which last year’s ConSoc trip saw a seal! Sadly, no seals were seen here this year, but instead meadow pipits and plenty of oystercatchers. After a short wander, we went to Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve hoping to see the elusive bearded tit. Having arrived, we had a quick look around the visitor centre and then set off with binoculars in hand and cameras on standby! Straight away we found a nice little pond with reed bunting, reed warblers and long tailed tit.
