Autumn Images

Here are a few images from a couple of all-too-brief October visits to the Norfolk coast, and a day at unique Spurn Point in East Yorkshire.

A grey early morning at Snettisham, North Norfolk, with a high tide pushing the waders towards the shore:

 
 
 
 
 
 
A single Knot:
 
 
 
 
 
Little Egret at Titchwell, North Norfolk:


 
 
 
 
 
Sanderlings:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Bearded Tit at Cley, North Norfolk:
 
 
 
 
 
At Spurn in East Yorkshire, whilst looking for a Black Redstart, I came across this beautiful male Red-breasted Flycatcher on the beach.  I believe this arrived following a heavy hail storm a few minutes earlier:

  1. amazing shots as usual. There was a brilliant photo at the NHM Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition; 'a wave of knots' (taken in Norfolk)

  2. Nice one Tom! I reckon I may have been in Norfolk the same day as you, it was a Friday, high tide at Snettisham. I may have even been next to you on the bank at Titchwell as a few of us photographed a Little Egret that was fishing quite close in! You were alone, I was with a friend of mine a bit down from you towards the beach end...
