Redwing this afternoon behind Felbrigg Hall

After Mondays excitement it’s all gone a bit quiet. This morning we had our first Felbeck Trust work-party of 2018 – it rained almost all the time! Still, we did manage to coppice a handful of Hazel and make up the paths where they were muddy. This afternoon I went looking in Felbrigg for some of the species we missed on New Years Day, but without success. I did see a few winter thrushes though – a nice group of Fieldfare near the church and twenty Redwing by the Ice Pond. On the way home I called in on Mallett’s Meadows and was pleasantly surprised to find the Redshank still in residence along with five Teal.
