Snettisham Flight Fest

Female Ring Ouzel
Snettisham Coastal Park has seen a fair bit of migration over recent weeks. The ringers in particular have noted a good passage of Garden Warblers, Lesser Whitethroats and other migrants. Some decent birds too, in the form of Purple Heron, Great White Egret and Blue-headed Wagtails.
The female Ring Ouzel spent quite a few days here.

At Snettisham a lot of the resident warblers are now on territory and the place is a cacophony of warbler song - Reed, Sedge, Cetti's, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Blackcap, Chiff Chaff and Willow Warbler.

The parks resident birds have also been gearing up for breeding. Linnets and Bullfinches everywhere, Lapwings, Thrushes and wildfowl are all either on nests or have chicks.
