A diary of my birding activity covering highlights and photos from my birding adventures. Mainly Norfolk (UK), occasionally beyond. I might mention the odd thing that isn't avian, but for moth and other insect news check out my mothing diary.

Past week

Not a great deal to report from the past week.  Last Sunday I visited the patch in the rain.  Little Ringed Plover and Green Sandpiper at one site and a record 26 Shoveler at another, a couple of singing Chiffchaffs and this white Pheasant were the highlights.

Nothing better than a pair of Mediterranean Gulls (at Burnham Norton) during the week before another attempt at the patch on Good Friday.  This produced a pair of Little Ringed Plovers and a Green Sandpiper at one site, another Green Sandpiper at another site, and now 35 Shovelers at a third site.  Having remained faithful to pretty much the same field for a while now, the white Pheasant shown above has moved across the main road to a different site about a mile away - major migration for a Pheasant!

Not sure what these mushrooms were - maybe Fairy Ring Champignons?  Not necessarily the same species but growing close to each other so I guess they are.
