WHITLINGHAM: Week 6 - Kingfisher & Goldeneye

5th February 2011
.
Blimey it's February already, surely only a matter of time until a good bird turns up locally? Trowse Common was shaping up to be a disappointment until a Kingfisher shot along the ditch between the common and Whitlingham Lane. Finally a first glimpse of the year of my favourite bird. The Little Broad Alders were quiet, but I found myself surrounded by Siskins further along near the ruins of Trowse Newton Hall. Within the flock was a Treecreeper, a Lesser Redpoll and another redpoll, which flew off before I could clinch it. I had a quick chat with Dave Appleton, who was on the lookout for a hybrid duck, before setting off around the Great Broad.

There's no point bulking out the rest of the post - it was windy, two brown-head Goldeneye were in the conservation area bay. Otherwise it's as you were at Whitlingham.
