Pair of Treecreeper, western edge of Felbrigg Lake
We had hail and showers on and off for most of the morning. Despite the cold air temperature and biting cold north-westerly, I took a spin around the lake late afternoon. I was pleased to see that the Lapwing pair were sitting tight on the water meadow and slightly surprised that at least one Snipe remains. On the lake the pair of Mandarin were along the western edge, as was the Grey Wagtail, but no sight or sound of Little Grebe or the Tufted Duck, which appear to have moved on again. There were eight Swallows hawking insects over the eastern edge of the lake and resting on the wire fence. The usual assortment of Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Marsh Tit, Chiffchaff and Blackcap were between the back gate and the lake, but nothing out of the ordinary.
