Salthouse heath
Tree Pipit Anthus triviallis by Marek Szczepanek.under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation license, Salthouse heath is a large area of scrub and woodland with stunning views of the north Norfolk coast.It is one of the best known sites in the UK for both nightingale and nightjar.However it is a wonderful area to walk around on a sunny spring day with most common scrubland and woodland birds being in evidence.By far the most bird song will be from common whitethroat and yellowhammer (below) but patience will be rewarded with tree pipit (left) and nightingale.Woodlark may also be present along with jay, green woodpecker, cuckoo and linnet.For nightjar, arrive just before dusk or dawn to hear their wonderful churring and a chance of seeing the birds.Best late May / early June.
