Found this little guy at the back gate to Felbrigg this afternoon

I had a very enjoyable walk around Felbrigg today in the late afternoon sunshine – though the air temperature was a bit on the cool side. I started by The Orangery but had no luck with the Hawfinch so, after searching behind the hall and around the carpark, I decided to do the long loop down past the church, along the footpath which connects with the bridleway running north – south to join the Weaver’s Way, then back to the hall via the rough grazing meadow and the lake. Birding high-lights were eight Common Snipe flushed from the grazing meadow – but alas I missed the Jack Snipe, reported later by Simon, Little Owl in the usual tree – later in the Oak by the gate across the dam, two Water Rail along Scarrow Beck and, finally, a couple of flight views of Hawfinch back at The Orangery. The Bullfinch were in the hedge along The Street on my way home.

Little Grebe, still present on the lake
