WHITLINGHAM: It's still winter

4th April 2013

Another Whitlingham wander in single-figure temperatures and snow showers. Still no sign of anything summery, in fact a single Siskin and a flock of Lesser Redpoll gave a wintery feel. 36 Pochard and 55+ Tufted Ducks were on the Great Broad. Other birds of interest were a couple of Treecreepers and a pair of Bullfinches calling from scrub near the Little Broad. No further sign of the second Egyptian Goose brood, and the first one is down to two goslings. There isn't usually this level of mortality, so I suspect the cold weather is to blame.
