WHITLINGHAM: Finally some hirundines

21st April 2012

My first visit to Whitlingham in a couple of weeks, and still no sign of any Sedge Warblers, despite three being in residence across the river at Thorpe.  I did manage to catch up with Swallow, Sand Martin and a lone House Martin though.  Two broods of Greylag Geese have hatched out (seven and six goslings), and there have been no further Egyptian Goose fatalities (two broods of six still).


After lunch, and waiting for the rain to subside, I went to Earlham cemetery to look for a Pied Flycatcher, which had been found by Will around a hundred yards from my old house (see BirdBeards for a finders report).  Unfortunately there was no sign of it, although its a large area with some impenetrable evergreens, so it may still be around.  Either way its an excellent bird for the city and further evidence of what can turn up if you look regularly.
