Today I spent an hour before work at the Lion's Head carpark at Felbrigg Hall. My target was the Firecrests which had been reported recently.  Imagine how pleased I was when one of these gems perched in a fir in front of me as I parked the car. For the next hour there were at least 3 Firecrests chasing each other around this tiny car park. Also on view was a Jay with a fair sized lizard in its beak, a Great Spotted woodpecker and a few Common Crossbills overhead. Out of view but quite vocal were 2 Tawny Owls duetting and a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker drumming.
