WHITLINGHAM: Week 11 - An evening visit

11th March 2011

The increased daylight and nice weather allowed me to go out birding after work for the first time this year. Whitlingham was pleasantly quiet, but the downside was that many birds were already settling down to roost/sleep. In fact the first thing of note was more than halfway round, a small bat sp. (presumably Common or Soprano Pipistrelle) hunting purposefully around the woodland edge. The walk back along the southern edge of the Great Broad was similarly uneventful, before a Song Thrush and Water Rail near the Little Broad added a couple to my patch year list.
