After a busy week with work, family life etc. I decided to shoot down to Felbrigg lake on the way home late this afternoon. After the strong winds at the beginning of the week it was most tranquil down here, and just what was needed after a weeks work. Wildfowl were well represented with Pochard (4), Tufted Duck (8), Gadwall (2), Shoveler (4), Shelduck(2), Mandarin (7) Mallard(6) Mute Swan (pr) and the ever present Grey-lags. On the marshy field to the south a male Stonechat was still present with a Barn Owl quartering this obviously productive feeding area. 10 Fieldfare and a Redwing flew east over the lake. I did find a pair of Long-tailed Tit nest building and vowed to get a few pics before the foliage has grown around too thick.
