‘Stranger danger’, one of the newly arrived Mute Swans, bullied by the resident male on to the bank 

As I’d spent all day yesterday on my bike, visiting more historic Norfolk churches ( you can see the progress I’m making at http://www.TrevorOnTour.me – churches ) I decided to go for a quick walk this morning, between the rain showers. Not a lot happening on my way down the lane – no sign of the winter thrush flocks that have been such a feature of the last couple of weeks, just a few Blackbirds which may well have been local birds. At the Lake, Teal numbers have increased to 13 and the family of eight Mute Swans had been joined by another four birds, which were being constantly harried by the resident male. A mixed ‘tit flock’ of about forty birds containing Blue, Great, Coal and Long-tailed and Goldcrest was busy feeding in the bushes by the dam. A small skein of Pink-feet flew inland, over the park and two Egyptian Geese were present on the wet meadow.
