Grey Heron examines the remains of a young Greylag, I think
It was later than usual when I set off to Felbrigg to do my June WeBS count. Given the general lack of wildfowl at the moment, I don’t think it mattered much though! A few Greylag – the youngsters from earlier in the week appear to have succumbed to some prey or another, a dozen Mallard, one Tufted x Ferruginous hybrid, a few Moorhen and the family of Mute Swan was about it. I did see more woodland species, with several additions to my earlier IoRA survey – Treecreeper, Nuthatch and Great Spotted Woodpecker. On my way back home, an obliging juvenile Chiffchaff allowed close observation.
Good to see the first successful fledgling Chiffchaff of the year
