Yesterday morning was the NENBC mid-week walk in Felbrigg Park. The weather was lovely for the time of year – warm, sunny with little wind. We had around thirty members attend and we saw over 50 species – highlights of which included Kingfisher, Grey Wagtail, Golden Plover, Siskin and Bullfinch.
Today it’s been raining most of the day – heavy at times. I was showing visitors around my neighbours meadows this afternoon when we came across the partly consumed carcass of a Water Rail! This is the first time I’ve had any evidence of this species on the upper reaches of Scarrow Beck! Evidence of the benefit of recent habitat management work I wonder?
