I had the pleasure of walking round Felbrigg Park this morning with the local U3A bird group – about a dozen in all. The birding got off to a good start, with two pairs of Bullfinch, feeding in the Birch trees by the Lodge car park – although a regular species in the park they’re never predictable and often rather shy. Unfortunately the birding thereafter was rather average, with flocks of Redwing, Marsh Tit, two Snipe, Common Buzzard, Nuthatch and a couple of mixed Tit flocks being the highlights. I did see another Bullfinch up the lane, on my way home and a Sparrowhawk as I was on my way to meet the group. Oh and I also came across this fellow, by the farm buildings, along the track from the church!

 Nice eyes, shame about the ears!
