Rockland Broad

14th May 2010

In a change to my usual Friday evening Whitlingham jaunt, I joined Gary at Rockland Broad. In theory, anything good here carries on west along the river to Norwich (if only). At first there seemed to be very little about, 9 Great Crested Grebes and 4 Common Terns. Eventually a 1st-summer Little Gull started flying around the large areas of pond scum near the back of the broad. A calling Common Sandpiper then used the broad as a giant pinball machine. Leaving Rockland we called in at Coldham Hall for a quick half. Nothing new added to my pub list, but Marsh Harrier, Grey Heron & Swift were all of note.
