Before the first family arrived this morning though, I did manage a quick walk to Fen Hide and back. There wasn't too much about except for a Chinese water deer, goldfinch and the sound of woodpeckers drumming, sounding like a machine gun battle between 2 - 3 individuals.

While waiting for the train home at Brundall Station, I watched a pair of jackdaws investigate an old woodpecker hole in a tree adjacent to the station. One went in surprisingly easily. It's partner waited it's turn before it too went in. It appears that I have found a nest site or at least the beginning of one.
Back in Norwich, I decided to see if the grey wagtails were around (see yesterday's post). Still no sign of them. However, there was something even better perched on a branch nearby. A kingfisher! My first urban kingfisher in fact as I have never seen one in the city before.
