Egyptian Goose, Felbrigg Park, 1st January 2015
Up before dawn to get the New Year bird list off to a good start! First bird of 2015 was a ‘chucking’ Blackbird in the garden opposite. By the time I got back home for breakfast, two and a half hours later, I’d added another 51 species – the highlights of which included Barn Owl, Egyptian Geese, Goldeneye, Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Woodcock, Buzzard, Fieldfare & Snipe. A brief walk, later in the morning, escorting my grandson on his new bike added Sparrowhawk and Linnet.
