Pair of Mandarin arriving to roost

The superb male Black Redstart was still flitting about on the roof of Felbrigg Hall just before five tonight. On the water meadow a pair of Oystercatcher and a lone Lapwing. A Little Owl was calling continually from oaks along the dam with another two on my return back through the shelter belt. A single male Pochard was feeding amongst the Tufted flock whilst a female Mandarin was resting along the edge of the dam. Another pair of Mandarin flew across the lake to roost. A couple  of Treecreeper were calling to each other near the viewing screen and a pair of Great Spotted Woodpecker chased each other across the park.
