WHITLINGHAM: Thorpe - no waders

16th March 2012

Following a very good week for waders at Thorpe, I took the first available chance to go and have a look around after work on Friday.  A decent amount of water on the scrape was a good sign, but as it happened there wasn't a single bird there, not even a Moorhen.  I can only presume that there had been some disturbance earlier in the day (maybe a Pterodactyl flew over or something).  The spit was similarly unimpressive, with a few gulls and some resting ducks.  A 1st-winter male Goldeneye with the Tufted Duck was probably the pick of the bunch, along with a single Stock Dove.
