Female Nuthatch, Felbrigg Park, 12th February
Still no sign of the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker which I saw a couple of days ago, but I did receive news from a local of a probable Lesser Spot visiting a nearby bird table. Spent most of my time in the vicinity of the lake, so this afternoon’s species count was low. No sign of Goldeneye or Wigeon on the lake but there’s now a pair of Shoveler. Plenty of activity from the commoner woodland species, including Great Spotted & Green Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Stock Dove & tits of various sorts. A single Woodcock was in the wood as I headed for Keeper’s Lodge.
Male Shoveler, Felbrigg Lake
