Photo Diary 9

February 10th -

Cranes in the rain & ringtail appears, just as Harry (Kane) scores!!


With no sign late morning of either the Glossy Ibis at Bure Park or the Great White Egret at Caister (10th) the journey continued to Filby, where both Redpolls and Siskins had been reported on the 9th by Ken Saul.

No finches, but a Kingfisher, Marsh Tit and 2 Treecreepers were seen along the path to Ormesby Little Broad, where a pair of Great Crested Grebes was pair-bonding and 2 Common Buzzards were of note.

The day had now progressed from fairly bright conditions to grey skies and rain showers.  However, time spent in the Thurne area saw a total of 14 Cranes fly in to feed on the fields and a female Hen Harrier was hunting over the fields near Ashby.

A Chinese Water Deer was seen and at least 100 Cormorants flew over heading inland.
