BROADLAND: Malthouse Broad

8th January 2012

We popped down to Ranworth in the afternoon to have a look at the female Ring-necked Duck.  I have a particular affection for this bird as it is the only lifer (so far) that I have seen at Whitlingham, dating back to when it first appeared in Norfolk in November 2008.  We found it pretending to be asleep with a flock of Pochard off the staithe at Malthouse Broad.  Afterwards we went for a drive around the villages south of Norwich, the highlight of which was a Barn Owl south-east of Shotesham.
