Finally something new to look at – Little Egret, at Felbrigg Lake

Despite being carless over the weekend, I did manage to get down to Weybourne Camp yesterday, courtesy of Lee, to catch up with the Little Bunting. An NENBC ‘first’ and only my fourth for Norfolk. It took a bit of finding but, in the end, the fifty or so assembled birders did manage to get good views. This afternoon I’ve been in the park where finally there was something new to look at – a Little Egret on and around the lake! My first since mid-summer last year. Other birds of interest included a handful of Fieldfare, with two Mistle Thrush, on the rough grazing below the dam – my first here this year, a group of five Wigeon and a female Shoveler on the water meadows, with two Egyptian Geese and a solitary Woodcock in Common Plantation.

Found in a public area of Felbrigg Park, no more than 30yds from two main footpaths and in the heart of Woodcock country – why do the NT allow this?
