On one of the hottest days of the year I’ve had the pleasure of leading two bird walks around Felbrigg Park today – one, the monthly NENBC mid-week walk and the other on behalf of the National Trust. Actually, this mornings walk was better than might have been expected. We saw over forty species with the highlights undoubtably being both Common and Green Sandpiper, along the western edge of the lake. This afternoons walk ran rather more to book with very few species seen. There was more interest, however, by way of dragonflies and butterflies with Brown Hawker and Essex Skipper being the respective highlights. Away from the park, a pair of Bullfinch along The Street was the only notable addition.
