Brambling: Dawn surprised me with a post Christmas trip away to Norfolk as she knew I was keen to see the resident Golden Pheasant and the Pallid Harrier that has been there for ages.
Egyptian Goose: We stood opposite the hay bails facing a long hedgerow that was full of birds, not just Brambling, we counted good numbers of Red-legged Partridge, Tree Sparrows, Goldfinch and even a Stoat! We even had this Egyptian Goose drop in
Golden Pheasant: First light on Sunday morning we went straight to Wolferton Triangle with the hopes of getting a picture of the bird as the day before I only saw it briefly and was therefore unable to get a pic.
Shorelark: Thrilled with better views and even a couple of record shots of the Golden Phes we decided to wait on positive news of the Pallid Harrier before chasing after it and instead we went to Burnham Ovary for the Shorlark.
Cracking little birds!
Pallid Harrier: While walking back from the Shorelark at Holme I checked BirdGuides and saw that the Pallid Harrier had made an appearance and come back to Abbey Farm, so with a hurried pace we headed back over to Flitcham.
Norfolk.....we'll be back!
