NENBC mid-week walk, Felbrigg – fresh from a successful Glossy Ibis ‘twitch’
It was the NENBC mid-week walk at Felbrigg this morning and I was hopeful that we would be able to catch up with the Glossy Ibis. The twenty or so participants made their way straight down to the Lake, noting the two immature Goldeneye amongst the flock of Tufted Duck, as we passed by. We assembled on the bank, overlooking the muddy footpath, and it wasn’t long before the bird emerged from the surrounding vegetation to feed out in the open. Everyone enjoyed good views before we finally moved off across the dam and around the western edge of the Lake. The cafe being closed 😦 we carried on through the Great Wood, before finally returning to the Sexton’s Lodge car park. A Peregrine over the wood was a pleasing conclusion to the walk.
