Lovely male Brambling yesterday at Sustead – unfortunately this photo is from the internet
I came through Sustead yesterday on my way back from Norwich with some more building materials to finish off (I mean it this time!) the viewing screen on The Common. I’d just passed Big Fen field when I saw a small group of Chaffinch in the road. They flew up into the nearby Hawthorns and, as I scanned the group, I spotted a handsome male Brambling sat out nicely in the sunshine – only problem was, I didn’t have my camera with me! This was only my second of the Winter – they’re such lovely birds. Hopefully we’ll see some more today as it’s our last Bird Club weekend outing of 2017 – an all-day affair, visiting Holkham Hall and woods – could be cold!
