The one that got away! Red-legged Partridge, taken near the Stone Cross, Aylmerton
I went to have another look for Brambling this morning at Sustead. There’s still a large mixed finch flock feeding on the cover crop, opposite Tudor House, which included Linnet, Chaffinch, Yellowhammer, Bullfinch and three Brambling – one, a nice male. I did a bit more hedge planting at Sustead Common before taking a drive round the local lanes this afternoon. Plenty of Fieldfare about at different locations. Best bird was a wintering Chiffchaff at Gresham sewage works, along with yet more Brambling.
