3rd January 2012
A rainy day meant I spent most of the time indoors, seeing a Jay and a couple of Coal Tits in the garden. When the rain did stop I went for a walk in the eastern half of Earlham Cemetery (which would surely be renamed as Britain's Magical Squirrel Land if the Broads Authority had anything to do with it*). I had hoped to catch up with a Treecreeper or Nuthatch, but the best thing I found was a couple of Goldcrests. Redwing and Goldfinch flocks were also flying around. I thought I may have found a roosting Tawny Owl when I found a Jay screeching at a large tree, but it turned out that the Jay simply hates Ivy.
* If you don't understand this, it's my first mention of the year of the Broads Authority's re-branding of the broads as Britain's Magical Waterland.
