I have been hoping that the cold weather would push a scarce bird onto the Wensum nearby (perhaps Goosander?), but have so far been disappointed. It was light enough for me to see the local Peregrine yesterday, and today I went one better with a Woodcock! I was about level with the new(ish) Jarrold Bridge when it flew around the edge of the Bishopgate car park before flying over the Adam and Eve and then doubling back and heading off towards Cow Tower. There isn't much open space along the river, so perhaps it was roosting at Mousehold and had left to find some open space to forage in overnight.
