Holiday birdwatching (with more quality photos)

On our recent holiday to the North Norfolk coast, I was able to see some interesting birds. The weather was quite bad for a few days, which limited the number of outdoors trips we could make. We did make it to Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve (in really strong winds). The main highlights of the week were several little egrets in the harbour at Wells-next-the-sea (one pictured), little terns and sandwich terns, various waders (oystercatchers, redshanks, turnstones, avocets (see photo), sanderlings, ringed plovers), a male and a female marsh harrier at Titchwell and 2 turtle doves. In total, I saw 69 species (including the journeys)
