Long-tailed Tit, Felbrigg Park

Walked round Felbrigg Park in the morning with a group of friends from Gresham. Similar birds to the previous day, with winter thrushes and tit flocks most in evidence. Two adult winter Herring Gull feeding on the fields by the church and a Chiffchaff near the Hall were of interest. In the afternoon I walked the southern boundary of the parish, between Aylmerton and Gresham. The Woodpigeon flock in the stubble fields at the back of Park Hall Farm has increased to about 400 and there were plenty of gulls on the new plough off Cooper’s Lane. In the park, Teal numbers on the marsh have increased to five and a couple of Snipe came in at dusk. A Grey Wagtail was near the Lake. There was a steady movement of Chaffinch, west, throughout the afternoon – I must have seen five small flocks of 8-10 birds. Water Rail were again squealing from the reed bed and the Bullfinch were calling in The Street on my return home.
