Felbrigg Lake

It was more like summer here this afternoon, a mild bright day with peeps all over the place! Birds were still about though, with significantly three Stonechat now in attendence, a pair on the marshy south side and a smart male on the orchid bog next to the lake. Also here a Barn Owl was on early patrol, with a second later on. The Mandarin are still present with an additional female(thats a total of 5 females and 7 males now) and the Siskin flock still number about 30 birds (though no Redpolls yet) No sign of any Barnacle Geese!

Stonechat - back in force!

Ran the moth trap for the first time this year, a few hours before bedtime predictably attracted a Pale -brindled Beauty and a couple of Spring Ushers
