I was in Lincolnshire for most of the day yesterday but I did manage a quick walk late afternoon. Interesting stuff included the return of our breeding Swift to the village – there were six together over Church Road and a pair Mandarin which flew from Felbrigg over the village allotments. Quite a few Whitethroat dotted here and there, Reed Warbler are still singing in the reed bed at Felbrigg and the Egyptian Geese have managed to hang on to four young – despite the cattle which are now wandering, unrestrained, across the whole of the water meadow. Their activities has almost certainly put a stop to any possible Lapwing breeding!

Busy at Cley NWT today but tomorrow is the NENBC ‘Big Sit’ event, click here for details. I’m coordinating the one at Felbrigg. Come and find us at The Warren, anytime from 05.00 – 21.00.
