Common Sandpiper – Felbrigg Lake

Some excellent birding in the park late afternoon, despite the persistent cold weather. The Common Sandpiper was still along the western edge of the lake, along with the male Mandarin in the south east corner and the male Grey Wagtail on the dam wall. I caught the  Little Owl napping in it’s favourite tree, with a Lesser Whitethroat in the hedge just below it. There were just five Wheatear left in the grazing meadow, south of the Weaver’s Way – two males and three females. The pair of Lapwing were on the meadow, north of the water meadow, and away from the nest – again! There were a pair of Bullfinch in the lane, on the way back home.
