Lapwing on the water meadow – apparently they’ve already lost a chick
I went down to Felbrigg Park early to see if the recent spell of improved weather had allowed a few more migrants in. The only addition for me, over the day before, were three female Wheatear in the grazing meadow, south of the Weaver’s Way. Richard & Di reported a singing Reed Warbler in the reed bed, along with the Sedge Warblers, and Lee had three Ring Ouzel in the afternoon, from the allotments. There were a couple of male Mandarin and a pair of Tufted Duck on the lake and the Little Owl was in the Ash tree below the dam. The Egyptian Geese have managed to hang on to three young and I could see at least one cygnet in the Mute Swan nest. The Lapwing have not been so lucky though – apparently they’ve already lost a chick to the Grey Heron. Still no Cuckoo..
