Very disappointing to dip on the Great Knot on practically the only day it wasn't at Titchwell On Saturday 18th June, A A very early start for a trip to Titchwell to see the GK with Paul & Jane F. Unfortunately we didn't see it as it was only there for some ten minutes. Saw several 1000 Knot on th beach and c1000 flew onto the freshwater marsh with several fine sp individuals c5. Also on the reserve was a fine dusky sp Spotted Redshank, many Black- tailed Godwits, 3 wp Bar- tailed Godwits, several close Avocets and Gadwall and a pair of red- crested Pochards on one of the islands. Didn't spot any PGP on the brackish marsh either, although had looked there perhaps it hadn't flown in as we left about 4pm.(apart from 10 minutes in the morning) I knew probably wouldn't get another chance as I was tied up for the next few weekends. On a much better note, I was able to Norfolk tick a fine sole Lizard Orchid.
