Local Buzzard surveying Aylmerton Common

A quick catch-up. Friday through to Sunday evening was basically consumed with Aylmerton Pond Project preparation and execution. Yesterday was duty day at Cley where it’s beginning to quieten down – highlights included a couple of Little Stint, a Curlew Sandpiper and plenty of showy Bearded Tit. This morning it’s catching up with Felbrigg Park Breeding Bird Survey stuff and then more ‘boggy board-walk’ construction!

Our resident woodland birds are becoming more noticeable. A brief early walk around the park this morning produced both woodpeckers, Nuthatch, Robin, Wren, Dunnock and three species of tit. Summer lingers on in the form of a Chiffchaff and a mixed flock of House Martin and Swallows still, feeding over the lake. There was a lone Teal in amongst the Mallard on the water meadow and the Kingfisher was perched near the viewing screen. On the way back up the lane the Buzzard was on it’s favoured perch, overlooking Aylmerton Common.
