20th February 2009

A day out on the train, looking for two birds I missed at their regular locations in January. Firstly I went to Sheringham, where after a quick walk along the length of the promenade I saw a Purple Sandpiper in a gap between boulders. Then back on the train and a rather muddy walk from Roughton Road to Felbrigg Hall. I was rewarded with good views of 5 male & 2 female Mandarin, one of my bogey birds from previous years. Little else of note, although having not seen a Skylark until the previous week, they were singing everywhere, all day!

Year list 130 species
