Stock Dove – present on any walk in Felbrigg
Wednesday was Felbrigg walks day – NENBC in the morning, attended by thirty people! and the National Trust walk in the afternoon, with e respectable eight people. Most of the good birds were in the morning, including a small but noticeable passage of Common Buzzard, a juvenile Marsh Harrier heading south, Kingfisher on the lake and first arrival of Pink-footed Geese – a skein of c.80, heading inland.
Yesterday I was at an event near Rugby – celebrating the 30th anniversary of a lecture series I started when we lived in Worcestershire. It’s nice to know that somethings last!
We’re now heading into a long weekend work party for the Village Pond Project, creating the reed filter bed and constructing a ‘boggy board-walk’ and dipping platform – a lot of hard work but rewarding all the same.
