On Thursdays lunch break a trip to Cringleford Yare Valley Walk.I work on the main road so i took take full advantage of making every minute of my a half hour break count! I didn't see any thing on the river other then a Moorhen and a couple of Mallards until i looked up to see 2x Common Buzzards circling .I then heard that favourite call of mine, that piping "Phew". Yes up along the thickets and brambles were 3x Bullfinches.Those that me or have followed my blog will know this is my favourite common bird(not so common as they were and not so easy to see either) so this was a treat.They were showing well, that is as well as a Bullfinch shows.I watched as they worked there way along and then i had to get back to work.
After work i quickly headed to Uea broad and picked up a Kingfisher in the usual spot and a Gooseander on the Broad its self. Interestingly i had 2 Chinese Water Deer run out across my path and out into the open and across the rugby pitch! I think that one was chasing the other closely.Very unusual behaviour to see them so exposed .
