Diver Down




A very early, pre-work start at Oulton Broad today was bitterly cold and with a strong westerly breeze it felt as if winter was not quite ready to realise it's icy grip just yet. A female Siskin was heard and seen calling from a tree bordering Nicholas Everitt Park and 2 Egyptian Geese hissed at me as I walked past or was it their attempt at the "Sand dance?"
The Black throated Diver was at the Western end of the Broad and showing well, best viewable from the Yacht Club. This bird has been here since early February and maybe due to the increased boating activity have made the bird a little more wary than earlier in the year when it often gave stunning views down to 1 metre!
