Fieldfare – first arrivals, two weeks earlier than last year – Felbrigg
‘Bird of the day’ award for yesterday goes to a flock of nine, newly arrived, Fieldfare which flew north-west over the rough grazing below the dam at Felbrigg. Two weeks earlier, in the local area, than last year and the first returning birds to be reported in the NENBC area this year. Other than that, the Pintail and Wigeon remain on the lake and small birds continue to be very scarce! I’m leading a ‘Migration Workshop’ at Cley NWT today, that should be fun – no birds and forty mile an hour northerlies with rain!
