Leucistic Pochard, Cley NWT

Yesterday I had the pleasure of showing Adam and his friends around a few of the wildlife sites in North Norfolk. We started off at Kelling Heath, where we had good views of most of our target species, including Dartford Warbler (4) and Woodlark (2).  We called in at the Felbeck Trust site at Sustead Common, where the highlight was three freshly emerged Broad-bodied Chasers.  Lunch was at Felbrigg Hall, followed by an enjoyable walk down the East Bank at Cley, stopping off at Baconsthorpe castle on the way. Pick of afternoon was an amazing leucistic Pochard on Don’s Pool, Bearded Tit, several Four-spotted Chaser and Red-eyed Damselfly. A really nice day!
