Holkham highlight

It was the NENBC field trip to Holkham today. The morning was spent in the park looking for woodland species – more looking than finding I’m afraid! The afternoon was spent on a slow walk to Washington hide and return. The highlight of the afternoon, apart from a reasonable selection of wildfowl including a couple of White-fronted Geese, was a particularly pale Buzzard. Seen from the hide, the bird was sat in a tree close to the A149 but even at that distance the striking overall pale plumage could clearly be seen. It put me in mind of the bird I saw last April in the Brecks.
