Spotted Flycatcher, Park Farm – from an earlier visit

Surprised to find, on a brief walk round this afternoon, that one of the Spotted Flycatchers at Park Farm is still around! Hunting insects from the edge of the farm roof – this is almost certainly one of the juveniles from the late brood there, found in early August. A probable second pair were feeding young along the ‘new path’ to Felbrigg lake a couple of weeks earlier. Spotted Flycatcher is now a scarce breeding species in Norfolk.

A further surprise came when I found a Hornet’s nest just 5 yds from the footpath in Felbrigg!
