Had a great Saturday with my friend Ian who volunteered to come on his first birding trip with me. We had an early start leaving Woking at 05: 30am as our destination was Norfolk! Our first stop (after a fry-up in Brandon) was at Holme Dunes where we got nice looks at the long staying BARRED WARBLER! I found out about this bird prior to our trip. Thanks The Birds of Norfolk.

Our next next stop was Titchwell RSPB Reserve where we spent most of the day. We got over 70 species and a great selection of waders. We didn't connect with the Pectoral Sandpiper that had been seen earlier but had good looks at Little Stint and Curlew Sandpiper.

Thanks Ian for a great day and being such a good sport on a long birding day!
