Water Rail, taken in January 2014, Felbrigg Park

Had a good walk round the park this afternoon, despite the rather gloomy weather. On the way down the lane the Barn Owl was busy hunting over the rough pasture field – saw ‘her’ catch and devour a mouse. In the park a Common Buzzard was being harassed by Crows, the Egyptian Geese were making a racket near the house and there was a surprisingly obliging Water Rail, feeding out in the open at the top pond. Wildfowl numbers are increasing – there were 28 Teal on the water meadows and 13 Gadwall, a pair of Goldeneye, male Tufted Duck, as well as the usual stuff, on the Lake. Coot numbers have doubled to two! IMG_9214 Male Goldeneye, amongst growing numbers of wildfowl, on Felbrigg Lake, 18th November
