Juvenile Kestrel, Felbrigg Lake, this morning – one of two fledged locally

The birding excitement of the past few days has now died down and it’s back to the more mundane. My morning walk around the lake produced very little of note. There were a couple of Sand Martin and a Swift hawking insects over the water meadow. The female Gadwall was with forty or so moulting Mallard – no sign of the Mandarin though. I do keep missing it! There were a couple of approachable juvenile Kestrel sitting on the fence posts, east of the lake. A few Gatekeeper butterflies warming themselves in the morning sun, along The Street, was the only insect interest.
