March in Norfolk is often a great time along the coast for the returning arctic waders in their summer dress.
In the forest areas of The Brecks number of Brambling, Siskin, Redpoll and Crossbill start to form flocks before returning north.
It’s also a good time for watching the amazing display of our increasing population of Goshawks, whilst Woodlarks start their early Spring song.
March will also see the first early summer migrants returning, visible migration starts from mid-month onwards and occasionally a rarer Nearctic wader or duck will appear with it’s Eurasian congeners.
