The scene at Sustead Common yesterday, during the live broadcast on Radio Norfolk
It was the Felbeck Trust / NENBC National Nest-box event yesterday at Sustead Common. The day started with a live broadcast on Radio Norfolk and after a cold and foggy start the weather was sunny with clear blue skies throughout. We had a steady stream of visitors, managed to exceed our target by constructing and erecting over 60 boxes in Spurrell’s Wood and raised £670 for our appeal. Not a bad effort – my thanks go to all those who supported the event in any way. Although we were otherwise occupied throughout the day we did managed to get great views of a Woodcock, in the glow of the late afternoon sun – flushed when we went to instal one of the last few boxes!
