Nature notes and a record of species recorded from in and around Felbrigg Park.

Tuesday, 29 April 2014


What looked like being a pretty uneventful visit today was brightened up when at the end of my loop of the lake I spotted a bird perched up on the barbed wire fence by the reedbed which proved to be as hoped a Whinchat, and although fairly mobile and never really allowing a close approach, it was really nice to connect with one as they are far from guaranteed in the park.

The first baby Moorhens were present on the lake, as was a drake Mandarin, and a single Common Snipe was on the meadow.
