It was raining as I made my way to Felbrigg Hall this morning, for a meeting with their Estates staff, to discuss the arrangements for some bird walks they’d like me to do for them. Watch this space for further details! By the time we’d finished the sun had come out so I decided to have a walk around the Lake. Little new or of interest on the water meadow or the lake for that matter, just a nice mixture of hirundine feeding over the water and a dozen or so Mallard. I did come across a newly fledged family party of Blackcap. The only distraction coming up the lane was a gathering of Greenfinch – which is always good to see.
Just had a message from Nigel to say that he saw an Otter walking up the road by Aylmerton Village Pond this lunch time – oh wow! Presumably the same individual as I saw on Felbrigg Lake, a few days ago. Keep your eyes peeled and please slow down if you’re passing the pond!
