‘Duck Count day’ at Felbrigg Lake

Yesterday was Felbeck Trust’s Official Opening at Sustead Common, click this link for a more detailed account. This morning was my first WeBS count on Felbrigg Lake of the 2017/18 winter period. There were eight Gadwall – two pairs on the lake and three males and a female on the Top pond above the water meadow, eight Tufted Duck – including two hybrid Tufted x Ferruginous, the eclipse male Wigeon, at least one Water Rail in the reed-bed and a Grey Heron. A Sand Martin was feeding over the lake in the mixed hirundine flock,

and a lone juvenile Hobby was sat in a dead oak, at the edge of Common Plantation.
