A grotty grey, bleak day here in Aylmerton put pay to any thoughts of digiscoping. A quick flit over to Felbrigg produced nothing new with Mallard c30, Teal 7, Pochard 3, Tufted Duck 2 and Mandarin 3 being only birds of note. The cover crops along School Road on the southern boundary are now pulling some birds in with around 40 Chaffinch and Greenfinch and at least 3 Brambling there this morning. Whilst trying to get a veiw of the latter on the deck (impossible!) a Sparrowhawk went over, my first in Aylmerton this year! Yesterday morning also produced a PYL bird in the shape of a very uninspiring 1st winter Herring Gull!
