Still fairly quiet from the track this morning with the only birds of note being single Wheatear, c55 Golden Plover, 2 pairs Lapwing and c7 pairs of Skylark.
In the garden it was more of the same with 3 Sand Martin north, 2 Fieldfare north and (FotS) House Martin.
With the sea mist continuing to hug the coastline I opted for a walk down to Felbrigg Lake late this afternoon. Duck numbers greatly reduced now but along with 6 Tufted Duck, 6 Mallard a pair of Shelduck and 20 odd Grey-lag Geese were a pair of Gadwall. The Green woodpecker was still present and had the good grace to cross the boundary into Aylmerton, however the two Yellow Wagtail (FotS) present stayed true to Felbrigg parish so will have to wait for another day!

Grey-lag Geese

After returning home I had to nip up to the petrol station at Roman Camp where I fortuitously bumped in to a Red Kite that flew across the road before circling and moving off south, more than making up for the lack of migrant raptors so far this spring.
