One of two Ring Ouzel in Felbrigg Park this morning, with another three in the horse paddocks at Aylmerton, first thing – a bit of an Ouzel-fest!

Now that’s more like it! Three superb male Ring Ouzel on the horse paddocks, behind the allotments (this is a private site, view only from Church Road). Thanks to Lee, who reported them yesterday afternoon. In Felbrigg Park, two Wheatear, one initially on the stone wall by Weaver’s Way, the other on the rough grazing meadow south of the track. Both males and therefore different from yesterday’s birds. Also in the same location, a Ring Ouzel – with a second bird seen briefly, later in the morning, in hawthorns, east of the lake. The Egyptian Geese appear to have lost all their youngsters, but on the plus side, the Mute Swan brought eight cygnets on to the lake this morning. There were three male Mandarin and a pair of Tufted Duck on the lake as well. Several Whitethroats seen around Aylmerton, Felbrigg and Sustead.
