2nd April

I have just returned from attending a seminar on avian tracking at Leicester University. Before it began on Tuesday evening I visited a couple of the local wildlife trust reserves with my brother who carries out volunteer work for them. I had to make a slight detour on route to checkout some recent work we’d had carried out on our house in Norfolk. This gave me the chance to call in at the coast on a very blustery Monday. Most of the birds and even mammals were keeping tucked down out of the wind, with a few exceptions.

I was fortunate to have good views of a sheltering Chinese Water Deer and a Hare that rushed past Dauke’s Hide

The scrapes at NWT’s Cley Reserve were very choppy

I stayed with my brother, who is luck to have Tree Sparrows breeding in his garden.
