WHITLINGHAM: Week 8 - Wildfowl count

20th February 2011
.
Today's visit was dedicated to doing a wildfowl count of the Little Broad, Great Broad and Thorpe Broad. For the first hour or so the country park was as quiet as I've seen it in ages, possibly due in part to the discovery of a body late last week putting people off. Later it did get busier, with a group of joggers and some scuba divers. I won't bore you with the counts, but 400+ Black-headed Gulls and 52 Teal were noteworthy. I did add one bird to the year list, an overdue Snipe.
