Had the pleasure of leading a local group of ‘loose-enders’ on a bird walk around Felbrigg Park in the morning. Unfortunately, despite the pleasant weather, very few species were found on the route, which took us up the Victory V avenue, through to the heath, across the road to Felbrigg church, down to the Lake and back to the Hall via the gorse clump. We did come across a couple of tit flocks but they contained only the usual species, including Nuthatch. On the heath we did have a small flock of Siskin and nice but distant views of Great Spotted Woodpecker. We studied the gull flock on the fields around the church, before dropping down to the lake, where we found Tufted, Mallard, Teal & Gadwall. No sign of the Redstart in the gorse on our way back to the Hall. A nice walk with nice people nonetheless.
