Redwing have arrived in considerable numbers in Felbrigg Park. Small flocks were in nearly every clump of Rowan trees, throughout the Great Wood. Difficult to estimate numbers but at least a couple of hundred I’d think. On the Heath there was a reduced number of Siskin – c35, feeding in the surrounding trees. Meanwhile at The Lake the Tufted Duck flock is creeping up – 37 at today’s count. However, there was only one pair of Gadwall and a female Shoveler, with no sign of the Great Crested Grebe, which looks like it might have moved on. Two Meadow Pipit were messing about around the water meadow – the first for me of the autumn. There’s still the odd Migrant Hawker on the wing.
