The first returning Pink-footed Geese were seen over Martham (18th), when approximately 80 pink-feet flew SE.
Gathering in the Brecks......
A day in the Brecks with Jason Nichols (20th) found the ‘gathering’ of Stone Curlews on the same fields as in 2018, near Cockley Cley. Between 50 and 60 were seen, along with 3 Grey and 8 Red-legged Partridge and both Brown Hare and Rabbit.
Despite the generally overcast conditions with light showers, some good photographic results ensued, rather better than those taken in hazy sun, on previous occasions, showing how well camouflaged these birds are in their favoured open nesting habitat.
On the way back, some House Sparrows bathing in puddles provided some more photo-opportunities in the car park of Jason’s favourite restaurant McDonalds!
