If you visit North Norfolk at this time of year you are more than likely going to see some Knot, thousands of them. So, it was unusual to see this individual on the beach at Titchwell. It seemed unaware of my presence and just continued feeding all on his own!
This birds` full name is Red Knot as in its` breeding finery its` plumage is a lovely red colour. You do sometimes get to see these birds in their red dress just before they fly to their breeding grounds in May and when they first arrive back in August, but the more common appearance is this grey colouration.
