After yesterday's day-long deluge, the sun tempted us out, the roadside puddles still iced over. Still no snow for us, despite the low temperatures, much of the country is well covered.
I didn't want to go far as the roads could be unsafe along the north coast, Ludham marshes and St Benets again. Not much about. A lone Fieldfare, dozens of Starlings, a large flock of Lapwing, one Marsh Harrier and a Kestrel. Always a good scattering of Mute Swans, two Whoopers and about eight Bewick's amongst them. Again, too distant to photograph.
Four Chinese Water Deer grazed the meadows in front of the mills.
The weedy fields between Catfield and Ludham still had the flock of finches we saw earlier in the month. They were very distant, parking is difficult on a very busy road so we didn't stay. Last time there was a good number of Brambling amongst the mainly Chaffnches, Pam thought she saw a Siskin but was not convinced.
